Each of these resources is aligned to the Australian Curriculum. They are also fun and interactive! Australian Federation is an important history topic but can sometimes be a bit ‘dry’, these resources aim to make learning about our important history more engaging and involve the students more than just a standard worksheet.


Bring Henry Parkes Tenterfield speech to life with our interactive stage activity!

Are you planning your unit on Australian Federation? It can be hard to come up with interesting activities that maximise engagement and learning. Our Tenterfield Oration Stage Activity is an excellent way to make your HASS lessons hands-on and great fun. Your students will love showing it off and there are great opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning by creating stop-motion videos or mini-documentaries using their stage and puppet.

Check out the video preview to see an example of Henry Parkes in stop-motion action!

This activity has been designed to align with the Australian Curriculum content descriptor that requires students to develop an understanding of the key figures, events and ideas that led to Australia’s Federation and Constitution (ACHASSK134).

Everything you need is included! Just print and go!
