Product Description
Explore and discuss John's amazing achievements and the poor reward and treatment he received after returning home a broken man.

Year level: Five

Australian Curriculum Content Descriptor:
ACHASSK110 – The role that a significant individual or group played in shaping a colony

” The horrendous return journey awaited him like a brown snake crouched in steely anticipation below a rusty, shearing shed door. It would bring John McDouall Stuart, my brother, close to death. He was convinced the Australian outback would be his final resting place..”

John Stuart is one of Australia’s great explorers. He achieved what others thought impossible by crossing the continent from south to north. His objective was to find the best route for an overland telegraph which would connect Australia with the rest of the world ending decades of isolation.

After reading the heartfelt letter from John’s sister Mary students will gain a better understanding of Stuart’s achievements, his significant contribution to Australia’s development and the enormous impact it had on his health and wellbeing. This resources contains three activities which include:

♦ Comprehension foldable activity
♦ Vocabulary puzzle and Morse Code activity
♦ John Stuart character analysis activity
