These are wonderful for classroom display to be used in conjunction with the unit on British Colonisation. Wish I had been able to use them when I was teaching Stage 2 HSIE. Kris

The pictures give a concise history of Australia that can easily be used as a guide and elaborated on in class discussions. Great to have on display. Gillian
