A hands-on approach to learning about Australian History and the changes throughout the 20th century. This unit covers aspects of historical inquiry through the use of historical sources, archaeology, excursion to a pioneer park/museum, interviews with grandparent/ community member, visit to local cemetery, community member(s) visit to classroom and historical research.
Although this unit of learning is written for Australian students, it could also easily be adapted for any country/culture as the overarching key inquiry question is about 'change over time' and for students to understand society hasn't always been the way it is today. The artefacts selected would obviously relate to your context. Historical skills and concepts covered in this unit is relevant for any country/culture.
