We will understand the influence of people/persons on the shaping of Australia as a nation.
I can answer skinny questions to inform my knowledge
I can create a video production including reasons to support my opinion.
This is a mini project about the Eureka Stockade, to help build your knowledge of this important event, so that you can have a stronger understanding before we go to camp and so that you can understand a bit more about how this event was a powerful move towards Federation.
There are 2 parts to this mini project- the first part we will start today. They are some ‘skinny’ questions.
1)When was the Eureka Stockade?
2)Where was the Eureka Stockade?
3)What was the Eureka Stockade? What happened there?
4)Describe what life was like for the miners- find a photo/painting
5)What does the Eureka Flag look like and what does it symbolise?
I would like you to answer these questions in your inquiry project book.
The second part, which you can be thinking about is: Who was the most influential person/people during the Eureka Stockade?
You will create a video/EE production, answering the question, including images and voice over to answer the question.
One of the images must be of their inquiry project book, including the answers to the skinny questions.
