Aborigines - Clash of Cultures and Colonialism

Aborigines - Clash of Cultures and Colonialism

This lesson looks at the tragic story of the colonisation of Australia and the destruction of the Aboriginal way of life. There are several resources you can use for this lesson (and you might want to use this over two or three lessons - there is a lot here!). The students investigate whether or not we should apologise for the actions of our ancestors, and how it could/should be made right today. A really good lesson.
