This unit is based on the Year 2 Australian Curriculum HASS Inquiry Skills, Knowledge and Understandings.

Students are introduced to Dreamtime Stories to investigate the connections of the Indigenous Peoples of Australia to the land, sky and waterways. They learn to understand that Aboriginal languages are part of our everyday language.

Students investigate reasons for connections to places, and places that they, and their families, are connected to.

Students explore how we are connected to places through transport, communication and food, and they understand how we maintain those connections with places.
