This pack contains Bloom's Taxonomy activities about Australia Day. The activities involve the significance of Australia Day for people in Australia, ways of celebration, Australian life and culture and general Australian facts. It would be great as a back to school activity.
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking. For best results, students should have a basic knowledge of Australia. Computer access for research will be beneficial if students need to broaden their understanding of Australia.
One Create Task asks students to design a new Australian flag and explain its choice of design and symbolism. Here, students will be encouraged to use higher order thinking, by making analytical decisions and reviewing the present flag. They need to make conscious decisions about colours that will go on the flag and be able to justify their choices.
It can be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. The framework allows you to date when they have completed a task so you can keep track of their progress. In the classroom, I like them to finish at least 3 activities before advancing to the next skill set.
