Motivation and Introduction:


Ask the students to come and sit in the mat session area ready for the start of
the lesson.

Align these with the
segment where they will
be introduced.

Once we have gained the students attentions, introduce who we are and
where we are from.
Hi Year 2s. My name is Aria and my name is Rachel. We are from
the university of Notre Dame in Fremantle, and we have come to
teach you a little bit about historically significant buildings in North
Fremantle, using iPads and apps to help you understand the concept
of our lesson.
Where we go to uni we are surrounded by lots of historical significant
buildings. One of the buildings that we have some of our classes in
was originally a hotel building (show picture on the iPad). But we also
have some new buildings, like this one (show picture of Tannock

iPads. (resource pictures

of buildings in Fremantle.)

The first photo was from the past and the second one is from the
present. Who knows what these two words mean?
Ask the students to stand up for the motivation activity and move outside.

Have one EA hold the iPad with the past and present pictures at the
front of the group of students.

One other EA will be on the left hand side of the group holding the
iPad with the word PAST.

Another EA will be on the right hand side of the group holding the
iPad with the word PRESENT.

Inform students of game instructions When a picture is shown on

the iPad they have to move to the word that it corresponds to.

themselves into the groups based on that selection.
Paper, coloured pencils.
At each table, have one iPad with the image of the building displayed and
paper and coloured pencils.
Ask the students to draw the image, noticing and labelling as they draw the
specific historical features, based on some of the information described and
prepared by the teacher.
Then ask them to look back onto the iPads, and look at some of the photos of
modern buildings and have a discussion about the differences in architecture
and building features.

of modern building)

Pack away the drawing materials.

In the groups they were in while drawing, get the students to create a
movie/story about the history of that significant building or landmark, using
Greenscreen by Do Ink and iMovie. Greenscreens are set up around the
classroom and outside. Students use the iPads to filmTeachers and EA can
assist with helping the students to use the technology and help with their
