Designed to compliment the Australian HASS curriculum, this Lapbook is a great way to revise student understanding and consolidate learning. Use it as an assessment or as a whole class revision activity, either way, this Lapbook will be sure to engage your students interests in the topic as well as expand their knowledge of the reasons for sending the First Fleet to Australia and what impact that had on the Indigenous Australians and the convicts themselves.
Topics covered in this Lapbook include:
- Why the Europeans settled in Australia (Life in 18th century Britain, Crimes, Punishments, Solution, Preparations, Voyage, Convicts, Arrival)
- First Fleet Timeline Sort
- Life in Sydney Cove (Food, Clothing, Work, Daily Life, Accommodation)
- iPhone Snapshot - students draw and describe what they would have seen as they approached the shores of Australia from the ships of the First Fleet.
- Diary - intended as an assessment but can be used in other ways, students take on the role of a convict and reflect on their life on board the First Fleet or in Sydney Cove
Also included in this resource is a basic Unit Plan with website resource links to assist you in delivering the content required to complete the Lapbook. Please note: This Unit Plan uses the internet as a resource, therefore internet access is essential to be able to follow the Unit Plan. Youtube links are also provided and therefore Youtube access essential also.
I have included instructions on how to assemble your Lapbook as well as how to assemble each each template to go inside the Lapbook.
