Assessment resource Year 4 history assessment - First contacts: A First Fleet story

TLF ID M014413

This is an assessment package that uses the Year 4 Australian Curriculum history achievement standard to gather evidence about how well students have demonstrated what they know, what they understand and what they can do in relation to the topic 'First Contacts'. Students use historical sources to research the life of an individual explorer, settler, convict or soldier before and after their arrival on the First Fleet. They then develop a historical narrative that explains how life has changed and/or stayed the same in Australia. The package comprises teacher guidelines, student booklet, assessment resources and task-specific standards (rubric, matrix, continua).
