Students explore the meaning of migration and the reasons people migrate. They study how social, political, economic and environmental issues contribute to decisions to migrate. They also categorise the push and pull factors involved in migration. Students connect migration to their own family history and compare statistical evidence within their class and the Australian population. Similarities and differences between migrant and refugee experiences are explored. Students reflect on the future of human migration and anticipated push and pull factors.
The key concepts addressed in this lesson are continuity and change, and cause and effect.
