Designed to compliment the Year 5 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 on the social, economic and political impact of the goldrush in Australia and the impact of migration to Australia.
Topics covered in this Lapbook include:
- Finding Gold - Where was it found? Where did they come from?
- Life on the goldfields (Food, Clothing, Tools, Law and Order, Accommodation)
- What did the goldfields look like? - iPhone snapshot activity
- Gold rush timeline activity
- Letter home - students are given the task to reflect on the life of a Chinese digger and then write a letter home from the perspective of a Chinese digger.
- What was the impact of the goldrush socially, politically and economically?
