Lesson plans, resources, and ideas for countries in Australia and Oceana.

We took two weeks to study the continent of Australia. Our first week we focused more on the geography of Australia {Great Barrier Reef, desert, oceans surrounding Australia} as well as the currency, the Australian flag, and learned some Australian slang words {grins}. During our second week we learned about kangaroos and koalas and completed some minit books {usually to make a lapbook} about both animals. We also had fun trying to draw some different animals and even tried to draw our own map of Australia. If you'd like to see a more detailed blog post with day-by-day plans for our two week study along with links/resources, here is the link: Australia Theme - Lesson Plans, Thematic Units, Printables, Worksheets.

Australia country profile

The sixth-largest country by land mass, its population is comparatively small with most people living around the eastern and south-eastern coastlines. The country's first inhabitants, the Aboriginal people, are believed to have migrated from Asia tens of thousands of years before the arrival of British settlers in 1788. They now make up less than 3% of Australia's 23 million people.

Years of mass immigration after the Second World War heralded sweeping demographic changes, making modern Australia one of the world's most multicultural countries. But migration continues to be a sensitive issue politically. In shaping its foreign and economic policy, Australia first looked to Europe and the US but in the last 20 years has developed stronger ties with Asia.

Australia - the land down under. Australia. Welcome to Australia. Ancient Australian History. There were eleven ships in the First Fleet.

Ancient Australian History

They were all small ships that included two naval ships, six convict ships and three storeships for supplies. The ships were specially built for the long eight month voyage which had to carry prison chambers for the convicts, and also carry food and animals. The animals included sheep, goats, chickens, dogs and cats, that also needed special areas to place them. The supply ships were loaded with enough supplies for the new settlement to survive for two years, after which they would have to make use of the land, local animals, and materials. The supply ships had all sorts of things such as clothes, tools, building materials (bricks, nails, ready-cut wood), cooking equipment (including some complete cast-iron stoves), plant seeds, furniture and even a portable canvas house for the governor. 2 Naval Ships: HMS Sirius HMS Supply 6 Convict Ships: Alexander Charlotte Friendship Lady Penrhyn Prince of Wales Scarborough.

The country’s original inhabitants, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, are the custodians of one of the world’s oldest continuing cultural traditions. They have been living in Australia for at least 40 000 years and possibly up to 60 000 years. The rest of Australia’s people are migrants or descendants of migrants who have arrived in Australia from about 200 countries since Great Britain established the first European settlement at Sydney Cove in 1788. In 1945, Australia’s population was around 7 million people and was mainly Anglo–Celtic. Since then, more than 6.5 million migrants, including 675 000 refugees, have settled in Australia, significantly broadening its social and cultural profile. Today Australia has a population of nearly 23 million people. Shared values At the same time, everyone is expected to uphold the principles and shared values that support Australia’s way of life.
