NAIDOC Week Land Rights Teaching Resource Pack

Wingaru Kids
Zip File | 6 resources | Years: 3 - 6

To help explore the NAIDOC 2020 theme – “Always Was, Always Will Be…” – Wingaru Education has put together a timeline of Aboriginal land rights events. From the time of Cook’s intrusive exploration and the subsequent invasion by the First Fleet, land has been taken from Aboriginal People against their will. There are a number of ways to delve into this topic with your class.

This teaching resource pack focussing on Land Rights includes information, activities, worksheets, crosswords and word searches.

The Land Rights timeline worksheet can be used as a class activity. Assign one event per student. Have them research the land rights issue related to their event and report back to class. Once everyone has reported back, the class can match the dates to the headings in a number of ways:

  • by completing the worksheet; or
  • by creating a large timeline poster that incorporates the dates and the students’ research.

Alternatively, the timeline worksheet could be completed by an individual student based on current knowledge and internet searches.

After researching all the dates for the timeline, students can also complete the related puzzles:
