Draw simple conclusions based on discussions, observations and information displayed in pictures and texts and on maps (ACHASSI025)

Elaborations
  • using collected information (for example, from stories told by parents, grandparents, elders or familiar older people; from geographic pictures) to make conclusions about change over time and place (for example, how occupations and/or technologies have changed; how places and behaviours change because of the seasons)
  • making conclusions after collecting and recording information about events over time (for example, a birthday chart that shows most class members are the same age; stories and pictures which confirm continuity of events over time, such as the local show) or about types of homes and locations where class members live (for example, an illustrated map showing that some students live in town, some live on a farm, some live in a unit, or some live in a house)
  • imagining what the future may hold based on what they know of the past and present (for example, envisioning what the town they live in might look like in the near future by comparing photographs of the past with their observation of the present) or envisaging how an environment might change due to human activity (such as when a new planting of street trees grow)
