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.
In this lesson, students explain the connections that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples feel to the land, sea, sky and waterways.
In this lesson, students recognise the connections between Aboriginal language and our everyday language in Australia, and how this connects us to our cultural history.
In this lesson, students leant to understand how distance can influence our connection. They investigate why we often travel to some places and seldom travel to others and that frequency of travel does not reflect the strength of our connection to those places.
In this lesson, students learn that food also contributes to our connections. They learn to understand that we are connected to other countries through food.
In this lesson, students learn to understand the connections we have with the world.
