Keeping the engaging and entertaining nature you know from our magazines, Australian History: A Primary Teacher Companion provides teachers with fun articles, worksheets and ideas to meet each and every requirement of the upper-primary History curriculum and integrate the Humanities into English and Literacy studies. (Because, let’s be honest, as much as we’d like it to be different, no-one has the lesson time to dedicate solely to History!)

  • Every curriculum concept explained in detail.
  • The Victorian-equivalent curriculum code stated alongside each Australian Curriculum concept.

  • Teaching tips specific to each concept to help make every Primary teacher a History teacher!

  • 2 or 3 engaging articles and several worksheets (answers included) relate to every concept. Some articles and many worksheets have never before been published in HistoriCool Magazine nor its coinciding Teacher Packs.

  • Glossaries for tricky words.

  • Questions for discussion, interesting web links and ideas for classroom creativity and assessment.

  • Fun cartoons (who ever said History was boring?!)

  • Sample student grading/tracking sheet.
