This teaching resource is a template Venn diagram designed for students to reflect upon the information they have learned about Indigenous involvement in the gold rush and the establishment of the Native Police Force as part of the Australian Gold Rush unit. Students will consider the pros and cons of Indigenous Australians helping miners, and how the establishment of the Native Police Force might have affected families, territories and relationships within Indigenous nations and communities.

This task can be used to gauge prior knowledge or as a post-assessment task to the lesson or unit.
