For teachers and students

The Background sheets have been developed for teachers to use as a starting point in classroom investigations.

Aboriginal considerations

The Background sheets have been carefully selected and written to present an overview of a shared Australian History. Aboriginal, citizenship, gender, multicultural and work perspectives have been considered.

Timelines

The timelines identify key events, people and places. They do not attempt to be definitive or exclusive of other events, people or places.
