Where would we be without the opulent Opera House, the luscious lamington or the distinctive twang of Aussie slang? No study on Australia would be complete without an insight into the unique images and icons of our fine nation, many of which Aussie Aussie Aussie introduces through a range of educational and fascinating information sheets and activities.
Factual and historical information, a wide range of interactive lesson ideas, and photocopiable activity sheets suitable for a wide range of abilities are presented in this book for upper primary students. Information sheets are designed for both teachers and students as background knowledge, providing a springboard for cross-curricular activities that encourage students to DISCUSS, DESIGN, WRITE and INVESTIGATE based on their experiences and understanding.
Activities are linked to student outcomes, mainly in the areas of Humanitites, English, and Technology, although several activities also focus on the Arts and Science.
