Resources to help the teaching of history and geography 

Achievement Standards Chart and activities for Geography 
Assessment activities at:
DECD Implementation guidelines

* Other DECD resources worth a look! 

DECD in South Australia has recently launched their "Making the Australian Curriculum work for us' resource to support the teaching and learning of the Australian Curriculum: Geography. The DECD site has a range of geographical bits and pieces referenced in this blog posting. They are certainly worth a look! 

As you can see below the resource to date includes a creative animation, broadsheets on the curriculum and 'talking heads'. I understand there will be plenty more useful things to come.  It is great to see a jurisdiction doing such high quality and innovative work to support the  implementation of geography in South Australian schools and inevitably beyond.

The Story of the learning areas animation. An excellent animation on 'What is Geography for' and 'What is History'.

Talking heads on geography and history 

The geography and history curricula, year by year, all on one page in the Learning Area Explorer.

Sound bites from the public on their perception of geography and history.

Bringing it to life resource (BitL) for history and geography
Geography Bitl is on the way - should be posted soon.
