Exploring the NAIDOC Week Theme – Worksheet

PDF | 1 page|Grades: 3 - 6

A worksheet to use when exploring the NAIDOC Week theme.

What is NAIDOC Week all about?

NAIDOC Week celebrates and honours Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures. The week occurs annually in July, usually including the second Friday. This day was historically celebrated as ‘National Aboriginal Day’. NAIDOC Week provides an opportunity for all Australian people to recognise the history and achievements of our First Nations peoples.

Explore the NAIDOC Week theme with your students

Each year, the National NAIDOC Committee (NNC) selects a theme for NAIDOC Week. This worksheet has been designed to assist you in unpacking the annual theme with your students. The students are required to:

  • find out the current theme
  • highlight the key words in the theme
  • discuss and define the key words
  • summarise the main idea of the theme.

Students are also encouraged to make their own poster to promote the NAIDOC Week theme at their school.
