The Past in the Present has been written specifically for students living in Australia studying History in Year 2. It focuses on the remains of the past in the students' local area.
The activity sheets have been designed to help students and teachers meet the requirements of the Australian National Curriculum. Every activity sheet has a corresponding page for the teacher, which contains answers, ideas about how to introduce each task, suggested extension activities and useful websites. Students will find the tasks accessible and engaging, and this will maximise participation and enjoyment.
