Product Description
If you are teaching your students Australian history - or even American history - then the Rabbit Proof Fence is sure to inspire deep conversation about assimilation policies that forcibly removed many indigenous children from their families between 1910-1970. This film presents the true story of Molly, Daisy and Gracie, three aboriginal girls who run away from a government settlement to return to their aboriginal families.

Humanities Hub's Rabbit Proof Fence Movie Guide provides a step-by-step guide and ANSWER KEY for the teacher. Students will complete ACTIVE film viewing with 26 movie questions, a graphic organizer and reflective prompts inspiring them to cultivate insights about the movie.

Your students will remain engaged and thinking as they develop their media literacy. Be prepared for a lively class discussion after reading watching the movie. Enjoy!
