Unit overview

In this unit, students will explore the ways First Nations Peoples collect and communicate important information from observing the natural environment. Students will identify what we observe, why we observe, how we observe and ways we communicate observations.

Please keep in mind, you don’t need to be an expert on this topic – we often learn alongside our students.

While this resource has been created so it can be taught in a linear fashion, feel free to start small. You may prefer to select a single activity that connects to what you’re teaching or about to teach. Even small actions can make a big difference.

Australians Together resources are created in collaboration with First Nations cultural advisers.
