WHY DIDN'T BURKE AND WILLS REACH THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA?

WHY DIDN'T BURKE AND WILLS REACH THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA?

In the early 1860’s the colonies of Victoria and South Australia were involved in a race to see which one would become the first to finance an exploration team to cross the continent from the southern ocean to the northern shores. Such expeditions would take explorers through the unknown arid interior and on to the savanna lands of the tropics. The Victorian expedition, led by Burke and Wills, was lavishly funded and well resources. It left months earlier than the South Australian expedition team led by Stuart. Residents in each of the colonial capitals waited for news of progress and hopefully achievement. Both expeditions faced considerable hardship. The Burke and Wills expedition gained more interest, probably due to the disasters encountered on the return journey south; the events of the dig tree and the death of Burke and Wills. Stuart, although badly affected by the journey returned to Adelaide without losing any of his party of seven. In terms of dates the Burke and Wills group reached the northern areas before Stuart but the debate developed about the technical issue of actually standing on the northern beaches. Stuart managed this but Burke and Wills, for various reasons, did not. This is a piece of Australian colonial history which answers the question. The debate about who can claim the “first crossing” continues. Take your students to camp 119, Burke and Wills most northerly camp where they will find some answers. A question and research page is provided as an attachment. Reference to the unit on Stuart is provided if you wish to delve further into Australian colonial history.

US State Flags Matchup Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover United States of America Geography

US State Flags Matchup Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover United States of America Geography

Country Flags sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘US State Flags’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

NINE-USA CITIES

NINE-USA CITIES

This presentation can be used for children between the ages of 9 and sixteen. There are fifty five slides and thirty nine pages of additional resource materials. I have selected the following cities because of their contrasting site, situation and geographical locations. They are: Boston, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New Orleans. This selection of cities offers extended studies in both Physical and Human Geography. Included in the slide notes and the resource file are suggested work challenges involving on line work, historical links, geographical writing skills, discussions and other map drawing exercises. The presentation can be targeted at nine and ten year old students but it will be necessary to use the shortened version of the script. Children between the age of eleven and fourteen should be able to cope well with most of the challenges. Key Stage 4 (fourteen to sixteen years) students involved in examinations will be able to link this resource with a large range of the exam topics. Some examples include: Boston and New York - Settlements, site, situation and geographical location. New Orleans - Flooding, Mississippi Drainage Basin, River features including deltas. Detroit - Industrial and population change. Chicago and Detroit - Location, Waterways and Trade, Glaciation and the Great Lakes. Los Angeles and San Francisco - Environmental Hazards and Tourism. Las Vegas - Desert environment, Water resources and the Entertainment Industry. Washington DC - Capital City, history, location, population, government and tourism. There are several IT challenges on offer that involve constructing a quiz word grid, following the course of the River Colorado by using on line maps, developing knowledge of site, situation and geographical location with a starting point in Downtown Chicago. The whole project is aimed at developing a wide range of geographical knowledge along with IT skills and the opportunity to improve writing techniques in preparation for higher level studies. I personally would use this resource for Year 9 groups in preparation for Key Stage 4 Geography. The History content makes it just that little bit more interesting.

THE EPIC 1844-45 EXPLORATION EXPEDITION OF LUDWIG LEICHHARDT ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN SAVANNA

THE EPIC 1844-45 EXPLORATION EXPEDITION OF LUDWIG LEICHHARDT ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN SAVANNA

The German explorer Ludwig Leichhardt joins the group of European explorers who made long and arduous journeys across the “Great unknown” interior. Well - unknown to Europeans and colonists with settlements along the coastline. Join his epic exploration from Moreton Bay (Brisbane) to the very remote colonial settlement of Victoria on the shores of Port Essington. Follow his progress by map and description. Assist your students to become aware of the dangers faced. Understand why this long journey which was expected to take 4-6 months ended up taking nearly 14 months. Find evidence along the route by photographic inclusions. Recognise the challenges faced by members of the exploration party. Find out why the ultimate success of this exploration depended on the skills of two aboriginal guides in the group. Find out how Leichhardt contributed to the naming of features within the Australian Savanna. Work out why this expedition has been given the title of “epic”. The description, maps and photographs provide a record of the journey that had been labelled as “a failure” was to be praised as “a success”. The attachments are provided for the provision of hard copies. Your students can develop their own expedition map and the screens are numbered so that answers to the set questions can be located and filled in. You may decide to use the attachments as you screen the pages in class or you may used them as check questions when the unit has been completed. Ludwig Leichhardt is generally less well known than Burke and Wills and McDouall Stuart but this expedition places him alongside them in terms of length, difficulty and achievement. Find out why. This unit can lead on to one of the great mysteries of Australian European exploration - the mystery surrounding the disappearance of all members of Leichhardt’s exploration group on the 1848 exploration attempt to reach the Swan River Settlement from Moreton Bay (Brisbane).

Slave experience - 9 page lesson pack

Slave experience - 9 page lesson pack

In this lesson students work through background information before completing a card sort to show positives and the many negatives of slave life from getting off slave ships through to working on plantations. Students need to place the events in a chronology in order to recount a story of the conditions and place them on an emotional rollercoaster graph to show which conditions they felt were the most horrific and why. This is a powerful lesson which should be taught with great sensitivity and a flavour of which can be experienced in the video file attached.

Class Play based on the Victorians

Class Play based on the Victorians

I wrote this to end our Victorian Topic. It takes about 15 minutes to perform and the parts can easily be reduced/combined or expanded/split to fit any class - currently 27. We performed in front of parents and the rest of the school. The play touches on farming, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Florance Nightingale and Doctor Barnardo as well as the poverty of the era. The 3 compères sat together at the side of the stage. The rest of the children all sat on stage on PE benches, and simply stood up to say their bit. Some of the parts needed children to act together. We only sang the first verse and chorus of Food Glorious Food. Two children started it off as solos. I used YouTube for the words and music, but it sounded better unaccompanied on the day, sounded great! All the children were in simple costumes. You may want to make reference to something to show the scale of the Crystal Palace, as our pub and church won’t be known to your audience! Our exhibition was work from and artifacts we made as a class.

The SOW covers the following topics: Introduction to the Industrial Revolution (free) Population Boom (free) Factories Coal Mining Transport Robert Stephenson Industrial Revolution inventors Child Labour Public Health Problems Public Health Solutions & Government Intervention Source Question on the Big Stink Luddites British Empire Source Question on Empire Revision Guide & EAL activities. Please visit for more SOW and to access the Cardinal’s Corner blog which provides justification and commentary on this SOW and many others. Here you will also find access to the online end of unit test. Hope it helps.
