The Indigenous Way - An Australian Aboriginal Case Study and Activities

The Indigenous Way - An Australian Aboriginal Case Study and Activities

This engaging pack is an Integrated Case Study with 50 pages of student activities comparing a traditional indigenous lifestyle with the student’s own lifestyle. It reviews aspects of self and society that were studied in the early years of learning. The children explore the impact of environment and experience on human behaviour. The activities contrasts the child’s own lifestyle with that of the modern indigenous family in a remote area of Australia. The information comes from first hand experience by the author, and includes a variety of images and drawings done within the remote community. Topics of work, play, living, environment, medicine, language are all covered in this comprehensive introduction to the indigenous way. I also use a scrapbook of the photos I have from my time in this community. The scrapbook shows daily activities within the community and it is a great resource to use with ‘The Indigenous Way - An Australian Aboriginal Case Study and Activities’

Donald Trump - All About the Man

Donald Trump - All About the Man

A great little illustrated resource pack outlining the life and times of Donald Trump. This person is very prominent in all our news and daily discussions and so my students wanted to know more about where he has come from and what he has done. Concepts such as bankruptcy, military intervention, free trade, illegal immigration - these are all touched on in this short and easy comic-book style reader, right up to point where is now the newly elected President. The presentation really brings the biography alive and encourages further research by Middle School students to find out more about some of the important topics. 11 full color pages. No political view is taken in this resource.
