This unit is based on the Year 1 Australian Curriculum HASS Inquiry Skills, Knowledge and Understandings. Students explore time through photos of the stages of life and use terminology including yesterday, today, a long time ago, etc. They create a timeline of months and seasons, and significant events in their life. Students explore how we record memories and celebrate significant events. They explore how changed can happen to a person quickly or over time, and investigate what changes may happen in Year 1. Students create a time capsule of information on themselves.
