Years 4-5: Colliding Worlds

Ground Floor

Colliding Worlds is a program linked to the Australian Curriculum History. Students can choose to be an explorer, anthropologist, missionary, archaeologist or an artist. Download the booklets below to guide students’ learning and engagement with the displays. Students are encouraged to work collaboratively in small groups with adult helpers.

Year 4 students will examine the impact of exploration on other societies, how these societies interacted with newcomers and how these experiences contributed to their cultural diversity.

Year 5 students will learn about what life was like for different groups of people in the colonial period (Aboriginal people, Muslim cameleers and European settlers).
