Lesson plans and activity ideas to celebrate and explore Australia’s indigenous history in Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week, which celebrates and builds on the relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians, is held annually between 27 May and 3 June.

To help you to support students as they explore the progress made towards reconciliation, as well as the challenges that still remain, we've brought together this top collection of lesson plans and activities.
