Key Concepts, Skills and Understandings

Students will view, analyse and develop inquiry questions prompted by a re-enactment of the Eureka rebellion. They will conduct an inquiry process by researching, note taking and presenting their information.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of cause and effect by explaining the events of the Eureka Story as a domino graphic organiser; one event leading on to another. They will view and analyse a poster to develop safe practice when researching online and investigate and analyse reliable sources and present well researched information on their chosen event. They will conduct an individual task to create a page for a group magazine investigating a significant event or development. Then, share their knowledge with others and gain greater understanding of significant events by reading their classmates’ work. Students will develop a series of What if? scenarios investigating key moments in Australia’s history. Students will develop their critical analysis and inference skills by predicting differing outcomes.
Historical concepts addressed in this lesson are sources, continuity and change and significance.
