Key Concepts, Skills and Understandings

After an introductory activity where students identify the community in which they live, students explore the historical concept of continuity and change. They examine historical sources (photographs) identify examples of change and continuity and discuss how these can be viewed in different ways—e.g. are student desks an example of change (students no longer sit in rows in desks with inkwells) or of continuity (students still sit at desks)? We know that some students think about the past as one thing— the old days—and the activities in this and following lessons are designed to help students think chronologically about some of the multiple forms their community has taken over the years. This lesson prepares the way for the community investigation they undertake in the following lesson.
