Generate class discussion and explore the ideas and arguments for Federation in Australia with your Year 6 HASS -Australian History Class
This is a great interactive activity to help students explore the various arguments and points of view in the decision making for Australian Federation. (ACHASSK134) It could be used during class discussion/exploration into the reasons for and against OR it could be used as an assessment task.
Students sort statements “For” and “Against” Federation and use the templates enclosed to complete a foldable activity to show their understanding.
Everything you need is included in this file including answers.
Exploring Federation can be a bit “dry” but by making it interactive and creating interesting and engaging activities I hope to help both teachers and students enjoy this important Australian History topic!
