Community and Remembrance
Australian Celebrations and Commemorations
In this unit, students explore the historical features and diversity of their community as represented by symbols and emblems of significance and the different celebrations and commemorations held in Australia. They will investigate the origins of our state and national emblems and flags and also conduct an inquiry process on a significant Australian celebration or commemoration, for example, Anzac Day, Australia Day or Sorry Day.
How and why do people choose to remember significant events of the past?
