This webquest allows students to learn about British emigration to Australia. The webquest uses an engaging website that allows students to explore the positives and negatives of Australian immigration history.

The webquest contains 26 questions and is a great way for students to learn more about the following topics related to immigration:
Settlement of Australia during the late 1700s
Australian Gold Rush
Racial Australian immigration policies of the early 1900s
Child emigration from Britain

An answer sheet is included for the teacher. A QR code and a regular website link are included. The webquest takes most students at least 20 to 30 minutes to complete depending on the age of your students. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students. I highly suggest this webquest for students in grades 6-12.
