ACARA Title: First Contacts:
This term, students will gain a better understanding and appreciation of Australia’s first people: Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders. They will learn about the important archaeological sites of Lake Mungo and Devil’s Lair and what information these sites have provided. Following this, students will learn about the Dreamtime and assess where stories originated and the meaning behind them. Next, students will learn about how many people groups there were and where they were located. They will analyse similarities and differences between the groups by looking at language and totems as well as how the people cared for and valued the land.
ACARA: The Year 4 curriculum introduces world history and the movement of peoples. Beginning with the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, students examine European exploration and colonisation in Australia and throughout the world up to the early 1800s. Students examine the impact of exploration on other societies, how these societies interacted with newcomers, and how these experiences contributed to their cultural diversity.
