We are learning to use evidence to draw conclusions about the challenges faced by migrants to Australia.
I can draw conclusions and infer the reasons why particular cultures choose to settle together or in a certain area. I can form appropriate search terms and fully navigate a website.
Today we will look at answering one of your migrant questions together by sharing our information, ideas, prior knowledge and thoughts in a class discussion. As it will be a class discussion, you all need to be ready to participate! You will participate by following the discussion with your eyes and body- look at who is speaking and concentrate on what they are saying.
You can share your ideas, thoughts, prior knowledge or questions. You can ask where someone found a piece of information, ask them to explain further, say if you agree or disagree too.
We’re going to start by looking at this website:
We have been learning about navigating a website fully, so make sure you use the tabs and menu bars to experience the full website.

The project sheet also asks you to include images, maps and street-scapes. What maps could you use? What key words will you use to find your images?
