Lesson 5 Uluru Lesson 6 Aborigines Lesson 7 Australia Day Lesson 8 Australia Cultural class This is the second part of my Australia scheme of work, but naturally you could use any of these lessons separately. I teach English in a French school and given that students are non-natives some difficult words are explained in English. I think across all lessons in this pack there are only 2 instances where I used the translations in French. So you can remove these if you want to. As it’s a class I do all year I have made a workbook with a cover etc. This has already been converted to PDF for you, so you just need to print in A3 size as a ‘booklet’, meaning you don’t really need to staple it. When I did this before I did a dictogloss for the Ellen + Margot Robbie video but it’s quite time consuming so unless you have a lot of lessons/time it might be better skipping and just showing the video and getting students to summarise what happened to her, or make questions / gap fill. There is a class test for Uluru and the Aborigines but for the Australia Cultural class and Australia Day no. Sometimes I make kids do a poster on a topic from these lessons.
Interactive powerpoint requiring students to 'click' an image to hear a sound and, using Worksheet 1, to write a word for that sound.

Created for use in a Grade 5 class (10 year olds) in a government school in Queensland, Australia.
This works best when expanded on to A3. Here in Australia I used it to link Science (Materials) with Technology (Design).
