Community and Remembrance
In this unit, students investigate their local community, how it has changed over the years and who contributed to its development over time. We suggest that the school community area is studied to allow for productive group work to occur, although the lessons can also be explored independently. Students undertake the historical inquiry process to investigate the developments, events and people that have shaped their community. Continuity and change and Sources are the key skills and concepts developed; students draw on local history records, photographs and landmarks to identify what has changed in their community over the years, what has stayed the same, and who has contributed to these changes.
