Aussie Clue Cracker
The NADC is pleased to provide a new digital education activity, the Aussie Clue Cracker which explores 24 national days, weeks, symbols and emblems. In using the Clue Cracker, we hope that students across Australia grow their understanding of how our current symbols have been shaped by our history, and how our symbols evolve over time.
We are delighted to publish this resource so that young Australians can learn more about their history, and in so doing shape our future. This resource also addresses the Community and Remembrance section of the History Curriculum for Year 3.
The resource can be taught at any time in the year, and there is a Teacher's Manual and teaching and learning activities to assist with using this resource, provided below.
Launch the Aussie Clue Cracker (requires Flash plug-in to run).
Caution: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are warned that this education resource may contain images of deceased people.
