This SMART Notebook outlines Aboriginal activism for improvement in their human rights and social justice in the 1920s and 1930s. It explains what they hoped their activism would achieve and finishes with the Day of Mourning protest on Australia Day in 1938.

Beyond the Map

The Pacific Northwest was well travelled by coastal indigenous peoples yet remained a blank area on European charts and maps until the late 18th century. Expeditions from Asia, Russia and Europe used modern navigational equipment to add to the scientific and geographical knowledge of the globe in the 1700s. By unrolling our charts of the Pacific Northwest, this web site looks at what inspired 'exploration' and 'discovery' and what those ideas mean.

Unit 2: Population and Migration

 

This article features an interactive map that displays the numbers of IDPs (internally displaced persons) made by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. You are able to look through the years and see the varying amounts of IDPs, as well as the countries that produced the most of them and which continue to.

 

This goes along with the human geography theme of refugees and IDPs, and this is a very helpful article in providing a simple way to see an overview of where and to what extent this most occurs.
