Directly applies to the following Australian Curriculum strands for Year 2 Geography & History:

  • using the internet, newspapers, community information guides and local knowledge to identify and list the people and places promoted as being of historic interest in the local community
  • suggesting reasons for the location of a local landmark (for example, community building, landmark or war memorial) before searching for resources that provide an explanation
  • investigating the history of a chosen person, building, site or landmark in the local community using sources (for example, books, newspapers, oral histories, audiovisual material, digital sources, letters, photographs) and relating a story which these reveal about the past
  • discussing why a particular site has heritage significance/cultural value for present generations (for example, it provides a record of a significant historical event, has aesthetic value, reflects the community’s identity)
  • examining the names of features and places in the local area, the meaning of these names and why they were chosen
  • using geographical tools (for example, a globe and world map) or digital applications such as Google Earth to locate and name the continents, oceans, equator, North and South Poles, tropics and hemispheres and then labelling an outline map
  • explaining that some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have special connections to many Countries/Places
  • examining the ways people are connected to other places
  • exploring how their place may be connected to events that have happened in other places
