Teaching and Learning Activities

This section of the site contains a range of teaching and learning activities in civics and citizenship education. These activities both complement and extend the teaching and learning activities in the Discovering Democracy resources.

The teaching and learning activities for civics and citizenship education are organised by year levels from lower primary to upper secondary. The activities have been aligned to the Australian Curriculum for History and English learning areas and the General capabilities and Cross-curriculum priorities. There are also links to online interactives from external sources.

Digital resources structured around two themes – identity and participation – which have been created or collected by The National Digital Learning Resources Network are also referenced.

A gallery of Australian biographies provides short, precise accounts of Australian historical and contemporary figures from all walks of life.
