This unit covers the majority of the Year 9 curriculum for History. It looks at Australia’s history from 1750-1918 and allows students to learn about World War 1, The Industrial Revolution and Making our Nation through In-Depth Study mini-units.
This website is for high school students; to encourage you to become rail safety activists in your community, and arm you with the appropriate knowledge and skills so you can demonstrate your positive and safe actions to adults, children, and your peers.
This unit develops Year 3 students’ knowledge of children in different geographic places. It begins with learning about similarities and differences between classmates, and then extends awareness to wider contexts: rural and urban Australia, and globally, including Asia. Students learn that some differences which exist between children represent injustice, such as child labour; and that they can make, and persuade others to make ethical decisions as consumers which may help to end child labour.
English rsIt is undeniable that we live in a new media age. In this age, literacy requires students to be able to make meaning from information in a wide variety of formats, one of the most prevalent being v...

"The U.S. Library of Congress offers a wealth of fantastic online resources for teachers and students. A quick jump into the teachers resource page will lead you to things like these primary source analysis guides that I have used with students in the past. The LOC also offers a couple of good iOS apps that are worth noting."
There are also several great tools and resources you can put to work in your projects, the majority of which are free. In this article we're rounding up all the Style Guide material you have at your disposal.

Useful resources for classes venturing into web design as a school project.
Here is just a sample of the digital tools and lessons in SAS Curriculum Pathways that support science, technology, engineering, and mathematics inquiry. We have over 200 science resources and over 300 math resources (including a full Algebra 1 course).
In this lesson, students will use a “sport’s science” video which is found on Youtube to explain how some sporting activities are completed at an elite level. After watching the video as an ‘introduction’ you will then proceed to writing an explanation piece together in a shared environment.
Questacon’s educational approach is simple; people learn by doing. In our exhibitions, shows, outreach programmes, and online we strive to provide fun, engaging ways for students to experience science and technology through inquiry-based learning strategies.

"If your class is like mine, the kids are always talking about playing video games! Rather than discouraging that interest, I want to harness it to encourage a higher level of thinking in my class. That is exactly what happens when kids explore coding. I love watching their faces as they try to process that people have to "tell" technology what to do in order for a game to work.
For many kids, the thought of creating games is even more exciting than playing them. Supporting their interest in gaming is important because the process of coding promotes problem-solving, creativity, collaboration and communication skills. Below I have listed four apps that are great places to start learning about coding with young kids. '
To supplement our Bring Back the Wild in-school program, Earth Rangers has compiled science curriculum resources for teachers to foster children’s passion for animals and better integrate environmental messaging in the classroom.
These lesson plans and articles have been designed with a multidisciplinary approach, giving you ways to embed connections to the natural world beyond the Science and Technology curriculum, and that also offer curricular benefits in Health and Physical Education, Language, Mathematics, and The Arts.
