First Contacts introduces world history and the movements of peoples. Beginning with the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Peoples, students examine European exploration and colonisation in Australia and the world to the early 1800s.
In Early Stage 1, students have the opportunity to learn about their own History and that of their family. This may include stories from other cultures and parts of the world. Students build on their own understanding of how the past is different from the present.
This program, along with the accompanying programs for Early Stage 1, Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3, has been developed to assist primary school teachers to master changes to the History K-10 Syllabus.
