Students are introduced to the First Peoples of Victoria and learn some of the protocols associated with acknowledging their culture and traditions. They learn about the diversity of the First Peoples of Victoria and their place in the complex history of the Australian continent.
In this self-guided program groups of students can work in specialist teams and focus on specific topics in the booklet in 2000 Generations. Students are given specific tasks to complete in their specialist teams, which encourages them to discuss the knowledge, skills and practices that have been passed down over 2000 generations.
At this year level students focus on the relationship between country and culture, and the connection to place.
They can follow up their investigations back at school using MV learning resources.
