To ensure teaching and learning needs are met, this digital tool is curriculum-aligned, with lessons written to the Australian Curriculum and mapped to both the Victorian and Western Australian Curriculums, as well as the NSW syllabus.
All lesson content is adapted from R.I.C. Publications’ range of history resources. Having been reviewed and developed by teachers, and with teacher feedback, this content is tried and trusted internationally, while incorporating new teaching and learning techniques to suit the modern classroom. See R.I.C.’s history range here.
LTP Year 4 History online teaching plans provide a study of the recent past, the present and the near future within the context of the student’s own world. Through four units—Australia’s First People, Early World Exploration, The First Fleet and Early Contacts in Australia—students will explore how changes occur over time in relation to themselves, their own families, and the places they and others belong to; while they examine their daily life in comparison to previous generations.
Each unit in Year 4 History focuses on one or more key inquiry questions, including:
- Unit 1—What was life like for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples before the arrival of the Europeans?
- Unit 2—Why did the great journeys of exploration occur?
- Unit 3—Why did the Europeans settle in Australia?
- Unit 4—What was the nature and consequence of contact between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and early traders, explorers and settlers?
The Year 4 History worksheets provided are designed to help students explore these concepts in a more practical way to improve their understanding and develop their knowledge. These are able to be completed digitally, or printed and distributed, making them ideal for both classroom and remote learning.
