PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product consists of three engaging and hands on activities to help your Year 6 students explore and understand the experiences of democracy by Australian migrants. This product specifically looks at the dictation test, the deportation of Pacific Islander workers and the internment of migrants during war time. This product endeavours to give students a first hand experience of the dictation test given to migrants on arrival in Australia and requires them to reflect on this to develop empathy and understanding of this experience for migrants. Additionally there is a foldable activity with pull out tabs so students can compare the experiences of European and non-European migrants. Finally students are asked to read and reflect on the treatment of Pacific Islander workers and war time detainees and discuss how this relates to their understanding of democracy.
This resource complements the following Australian Curriculum content descriptors and their elaborations.
Experiences of Australian democracy and citizenship, including the status and rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, migrants, women and children (ACHASSK135)
Examine different viewpoints on actions, events, issues and phenomena in the past and present (ACHASSI127)
