Welcome! This Scoop-it site is home to a range of effective resources that can be used within a Stage 2 classroom. It focuses on two outcomes within the K-6 HSIE Syllabus; ENS2.5 - Describes places in the local area and other parts of Australia and explains their significance; and ENS2.6 - Describes people’s interactions with environments and identifies responsible ways of interacting with environments; as well as the specific subject matter “groups associated with places and features, including Aboriginal people".
This Scoop-it site predominately provides resources that both emphasise and explore the significance of certain places in relation to people. Teachers will be able to use these resources to provide students with a range of meaningful and engaging activities. Many of these resources contain indigenous perspectives. Students will investigate the inquiry question, “Why are places important to people?”
