Global Projects


Years 3-4


Learners investigate family, community, national and international celebrations and special places to develop understanding about the importance of heritage. They will describe personal and family celebrations and special places to understand diversity of thoughts in their class and share with another class elsewhere. Learners will broaden their concepts of family celebrations by examining cultural and national heritage in Australia and another country. They will explore the meaning of the word heritage and how it is valued in various cultures.
