This resource features two great options for your whole class to participate in creating an Australian Prime Ministers timeline and a great display for your classroom that everyone has contributed to.
We couldn’t decide which timeline to create so we decided to include both and let you choose!
Australian PM Paper Chain Timeline
This activity requires each student to conduct quick research on one of Austalia’s Prime Ministers and record the information on their PM slip. Once everyone has completed their slips the class can work together to piece the timeline together as a paper chain in chronological order. Once complete it will make a great display in your classroom.
Australian PM Bunting Timeline
This activity also requires students to conduct research but they are required to find out more detail than the paper chain activity. Each student will be able to complete a flag and once everyone is ready they can be strung together in chronological order to create a great bunting display.
Australian Curriculum Links
This lesson and its activities have been created to help you meet the Australian Curriculum achievement standard outcome for Year 6 requiring that students develop an understanding of “The key institutions of Australia’s democratic system of government and how it is based on the Westminster system” (ACHASSK143) AND “The roles and responsibilities of Australia’s three levels of government”.(ACHASSK144) (ACARA 2017)
An answer key is included to make marking a breeze!
