This resource is a PDF file of an activity where students can make a concertina-style book about the convict ships of the First Fleet. Out of the eleven ships that sailed in the First Fleet, six ships were convict ships. These ships are in this mini-book with details of when each ship was built, how many convicts it carried and a colour picture.
This resource is one page long. The students cut out and fold the page to create the book. There are instructions given at the top of the page.
Each page of the book has a picture and information about the convict ships of the First Fleet. When the book is completed, it is designed to be glued into the student’s workbook on the last page. One side of the book has four pages which outline four of the ships and the other two ships are on the reverse side of the book.
This activity is a fun way for students to learn a little bit more about the convict ships of the First Fleet and was designed to use with the Australian Curriculum History K-10 Syllabus.
