An inquiry-based WebQuest which can lead your students in multiple directions as they learn about Australia's involvement in WW1 and the impact it had on Australians both on the frontline and the home front. Designed for Year 9 and 10 students, this resource is aligned to the Australian National Curriculum.

This printable PDF includes high-quality images and QR codes which link students to appropriate, relevant and high-quality information. There is a focus on five different areas:

  • Australian soldiers
  • Australian women at home
  • Australian nurses
  • Rejected volunteers
  • "Enemy alien" internees

Students work individually, in pairs, or small groups, to create a fictional character based on real historical information. They can then present their findings as a poster, oral presentation, role-play or any preferred form.

In your download you will receive:

  • 1 student instruction sheet
  • 1 rubric
  • 5 sheets of images and QR codes
  • 5 sheets of images with the web addresses for the relevant information (in case of technical difficulties with QR readers etc.)

Please note: Students will need a QR reader on their device in order for this resource to work as designed. If you would prefer not to use QR-codes, you should check out the PowerPoint version of this resource.
