Teaching / Learning Strategies Introduction; Reflect on the previous lesson about the Aboriginal Resistance, summarise the consequence of invasion. Etc Aboriginal groups began to fight with the British to defend their families which lead to many encounters. Ask students if they can remember any of the warriors names? Split students into groups of 4 or 5, and give each group the name of a different warrior.

As a class take students to the library or computer room. Give students 20 minutes to get their information. Hand out research work sheets Each student will be given a certain aspect to research to remain within time constraints these will include; what the warrior did, where they lived, what time period were they from and an interesting fact, and a picture. (see appendix for suitable worksheet) All students are to then go back to their groups and begin a draft poster/ plan for their poster using the information they have found.

Conclusion; As a class ask if anyone would like to share anything interesting they may have found. Select students to collect all the drafts and out them away for the next lesson.

Behaviour Management/ Physical Organisation Behaviour management can involve using awards and tokens depending on the class/ school reward system. In addition having set rules, no running, touching anyone else and explains why; because you can injure yourself or others. Also make the students aware that if they are being silly or not following the few rules they will sit out while everyone else gets to participate. These ideas are to allow for a safe and fun learning environment. The physical organisation of the classroom for this lesson use of computers. This requires no movement of furniture.

Assessment Strategies To asses students observe their behaviour in the activity, do they participate, how do they react with other students and whether they understand the concepts, are they doing what you have asked. Observation Assessment; -Participation -Sharing -Collaboration -Following Instruction -Using technology

This activity aims to increase confidence, knowledge and interpersonal skills.

Outcomes and Indicators Making;

Teaching / Learning Strategies Introduction; Body; Groups begin showing their poster and reading their information. Allow other students to ask questions or make positive comments. Encourage this by making positive comments and asking if other students noticed anything good as well. Reflect on previous lessons making of the poster. Ask students to form their groups, and one member from each to collect their poster.

Conclusion; All posters will be then stapled to the current HSIE wall, with the timeline of warriors. This is a follow on addition to the timeline that already contains the information on the white settlement. Tell students they did a wonderful job and everyone deserves a round of applause.

Name:_________________________

Aboriginal Resistance Aboriginal people wanted to fight for their land; they then began to do this. These people were called Warriors. The Aboriginal peoples did not have big armies to fight the British invaders. Instead, they worked in small groups to annoy the settlers and surprise them; this was the first guerrilla warfare. One of the earliest Aboriginal men to lead a group of warriors was a man named Pemulwuy; he was from the Sydney region. West Australian Aboriginal warriors in the early 1830s were Yagan and Calyute. The White invaders tried to capture the Aboriginals and put them in prison and on missions. In Australia, war between White settlers and Aboriginal people grew in 1824, making Aboriginal Resistance continue.
