This is a fun way to teach Australian-Anglo History that will almost certainly spark class conversation on a very interesting facet of history. This lesson is closely aligned to the Common Core.
4 excerpts from early Australia sources with high DOK level questions that ask students to analyze the writings. Can be used to teach the Common Core Standards, teach about Oceania for AP students, or to simply expose students to the founding of Australia and the challenges faced. Engaging activity that focuses on skills. Good for group work.
