This resource is a three page PDF document about the problems faced by the First Fleet when they landed in Sydney and started a settlement.
This activity involves students cutting out and gluing pieces of information into a cause and effect table. The first page provides the table with only the causes of the settlement problems listed. The second page is an answer sheet for the teacher and the third sheet has sets of the information needed by the students to fill in the effects part of the table.
This worksheet could be used as a research activity or consolidation activity after studying the First Fleet.
This activity was written to use with the new Australian Curriculum History K-10 Syllabus.
