This unit is based on the Year 1 Australian Curriculum HASS Inquiry Skills, Knowledge and Understandings.
Students explore family structures and discuss similarities and differences. They investigate and pose questions for families from the past and compare them to their own families.
Students use graphic organisers to compare life from the past with life today, including lunches and school holiday activities.
Students also pose questions for a guest speaker who speaks to the class about their life and makes comparisons with their own life.
Students discuss why things have changed over time, and they create a time machine in which to travel back in time to pose questions to a family member.
This lesson looks at families, what makes up a family. the similarities and differences between them.
This lesson explores how the structure of a family is differs from student to student.
In this lesson we will look at children from the past and how aspects of their lives are different or the same to ours today.
In this lesson students will write questions to ask to their guest speaker in the next lesson.
Students will compare their family life with the family life of the guest speaker.
This lesson will show students that things change for certain reasons and that changes are a good thing.
