✩ It is a 9-lesson unit (designed to be taught over a term) that contains all lesson resources including worksheets and posters.


✩ This HASS unit also contains an editable PowerPoint presentation that can be displayed during each lesson.

✩ Mrs Amy123 is known for its fun and engaging lessons that involve a wide range of cooperative learning strategies. This means that some lessons will not feature worksheets, though many will.


✩ This unit also includes a grading guide that shows what each grade (A-E) would look like based on two activities from the unit. This document is also linked to the Achievement Standard for Year 3 HASS.


Included are:

♦ Lesson resources (37 pages)

♦ Editable PowerPoint Presentation (100+ pages)

♦ Editable Grading Guide (1 page)

♦ Editable learning intentions and success criteria


✩ I do not identify as an Indigenous Australian and I encourage you to use resources made by Indigenous Australians for the teaching of their culture wherever possible. All profits made by this resource will be donated to organisations and charity helping Indigenous Australian children.
