Curators on the Couch, Neville Bonner - Teacher Professional Development

Curators on the Couch, Neville Bonner - Teacher Professional Development

Designed for use by teachers as professional development, this interview unpacks objects which align with content in the Australian Curriculum. Teachers understanding of these objects will be enriched further, preparing them to use the objects in classroom discussions with their students. The first of our series looks at Senator Neville Bonner, our first Indigenous Federal Parliamentarian, and a selection of his personal objects which are currently on display in the Finders Keepers Exhibition at MoAD. MoAD Learning staff interview Senior Historian Libby Stewart and discover some interesting personal stories, showing how an object can reveal but also hide a lot of information. This interview supports the cross-curriculum priorities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures. This resource is also supported by a teacher pdf resource for use in the classroom - please see our other resources on TES.

The Adventures of Sajo and her Beaver People Reading Comprehension

The Adventures of Sajo and her Beaver People Reading Comprehension

In this Canadian classic, you will read about an Ojibwa brother and sister, 11-year old Sajo and 14-year-old Shapian, and their adorable pet beavers, Chilawee and Chikanee. One spring day, Sajo's father rescues two baby beavers from an otter attack and brings them home to their village. After one of the beavers must be traded for food, Sajo and Shapian set off to see if they can buy him back. Travelling by canoe and by train, they face various challenges on their trip to the City. They employ skills they have learned from their Ojibwa elders, and are also helped by a Missionary, American tourists, and an Irish policeman. Written in the style of old-fashioned classics like ‘Heidi’, this original tale by the renowned British-Canadian conservationist known as ‘Grey Owl’ is both informative and touching. Rich and reportedly accurate descriptions of the Eastern Canadian wilderness provide the backdrop to a story of caring people who triumph in their efforts to reunite two baby beavers with their family and finally return them to the wilderness. Illustrations by the author and a glossary of Ojibwa terms are of further interest. The book is divided into 23 chapters. Write your own definitions, answer reading comprehension questions, and research 22 topics (ranging from how otters and beavers hunt and eat, to how elevators and steamboats work). For each of these activities, you may go into great detail, or just scratch the surface – the material is adaptable to different students. Enjoy a trip into the past with a sincere story-teller and lovable characters! Research topics: Jacques Cartier, Ojibwa tea, beaver dams and lodges, how otters hunt, feeding human food to wildlife, Ojibwa/European trade, what beavers eat in the wild, what instinct is, the Hudson’s Bay Company, birch bark canoes, what ‘portage’ means, forest fires, steamboats, who are the Ojibwa, Native American spiritual beliefs, animals in zoos versus in the wild, travelling by train in Canada (in the past), how elevators work, the importance of saying thank you, what bannock is, autumn around the world, how dangerous wolves really are. Bonus! This title includes a set of Canadian Wilderness themed notebooking pages.

How did the Homesteaders overcome the problems they faced on the Great Plains?

This great lesson is designed to help students understand how the Homesteaders overcame the problems they faced on the Great Plains such as water supply, natural hazards, extreme weather, protecting crops, bankruptcy, insects and the Native Americans. This lesson includes a PowerPoint with six core activities including starter, review summary tasks on the problems, thinking skills review activities, card sort and an style exam question. I have also included fourteen illustrated information slides to be used either before or after the card sort activity explaining the problems facing the Homesteaders as well as the solutions that they came up with. The two page Word Document contains 14 problems with the solutions that the Homesteaders came up with mixed up. Students cut out the cards and match the problems and solutions under the two headings. Once they have peer reviewed or checked them during a class feedback session, students can then stick them into their books. Alternatively, you could create a class set that are kept in envelops and quickly matched and then put back as a quick starter or plenary. The aims and objectives for this activity are: Theme: How successful were the Homesteaders at settling on the Great Plains? Know: What problems did they have to overcome? Understand: How did the Homesteaders survive and build successful farms on the Great Plains? Evaluate: What impact did these solutions have on the Homesteaders, the environment and the Native Americans? Skills: Cause, Consequence, Change, Continuity and Source Evaluation. WILF – What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: What problems did the Homesteaders have to overcome in order to survive? Explain: Did they try and solve these problems? Analyse: begin to make an overall judgement on how successful the Homesteaders were at settling on the Great Plains and at what cost? This is a great lesson which, which your students will enjoy.

Year 6 Australian History - Migrant Experiences of Democracy

Year 6 Australian History - Migrant Experiences of Democracy

This product consists of three engaging and hands on activities to help your Year 6 students explore and understand the experiences of democracy by Australian migrants. This product specifically looks at the dictation test, the deportation of Pacific Islander workers and the internment of migrants during war time. This product endeavours to give students a first hand experience of the dictation test given to migrants on arrival in Australia and requires them to reflect on this to develop empathy and understanding of this experience for migrants. Additionally there is a foldable activity with pull out tabs so students can compare the experiences of European and non-European migrants. Finally students are asked to read and reflect on the treatment of Pacific Islander workers and war time detainees and discuss how this relates to their understanding of democracy. This resource complements the following Australian Curriculum content descriptors and their elaborations. Experiences of Australian democracy and citizenship, including the status and rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, migrants, women and children (ACHASSK135) Examine different viewpoints on actions, events, issues and phenomena in the past and present (ACHASSI127) This resource can be purchased as part of our Experiences of Democracy Bundle.

Year 6 Australian History - Democracy - Indigenous Rights - Generating Inquiry

Year 6 Australian History - Democracy - Indigenous Rights - Generating Inquiry

It can be difficult to get students started when developing inquiry questions but once students are able to generate quality inquiry questions their learning opportunities expand greatly. This resource can be used in a variety of ways such as individual inquiry, group or partner work, to create a classroom inquiry wall or as a Smartboard resource to generate class discussion. The pages could be printed as a booklet or enlarged to A3 to display. The first page is a democracy brainstorming sheet/poster where students can revisit and record their understanding of what it means to live in a democracy. Completing this sheet first sets students up to analyse the text and photos provided to consider how they reflect the positive or negative experience of democracy for Aboriginal people. Students are asked to record what they understand already and any questions they have about the information relating to democracy. I have also included inquiry question slips which can be printed on A3 paper and displayed in the room. This resource complements the following Australian Curriculum content descriptors and their elaborations. Experiences of Australian democracy and citizenship, including the status and rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, migrants, women and children (ACHASSK135) Develop appropriate questions to guide an inquiry about people, events, developments, places, systems and challenges (ACHASSI122) Sequence information about people’s lives, events, developments and phenomena using a variety of methods including timelines (ACHASSI125) Examine primary and secondary sources to determine their origin and purpose (ACHASSI126) Examine different viewpoints on actions, events, issues and phenomena in the past and present (ACHASSI127) This resource can be purchased as part of our Experiences of Democracy Bundle.

Yr 6 Australian History - Democratic Rights of Indigenous Australians

Yr 6 Australian History - Democratic Rights of Indigenous Australians

William Cooper and Vincent Lingiari are two men who fought for democratic rights for indigenous Australians. This activity will allow students to explore the experiences of Australian democracy for Aboriginal people as outlined in the Australian Curriculum. (ACHASSK135) Students are required to use the internet or texts to research reliable information on how William and Vincent were denied democratic rights and how they fought to bring about change, not only for themselves but for the entire Aboriginal population. Students will investigate "the lack of citizenship rights for Aboriginal Peoples and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in Australia, illustrated by controls on movement and residence, the forcible removal of children from their families leading to the Stolen Generations, and poor pay and working conditions" as defined in the Australian Curriculum. Students are required to cut and glue the two information panels on to the page and then fold the strips on the left side of the top flaps side back and forth and glue these over the information panels lining up the edges so that they can open out revealing the information they have researched. Students are also required to locate their own photographs or draw their own picture. I have also included our “I used reliable information sources’ worksheet to help students find reliable sites and use keywords effectively to refine their search and find quality information. This resource can be purchased as part of our Experiences of Democracy Bundle.
