The story pack contains the following:

 Historical Narrative (24 pages)

The narrative can be used to introduce an inquiry or as an in-class research tool.  It tells the story of early European encounters with Australia; how they came across it, what they found and what they thought of it.  It covers topics such as the Age of Discovery, the Spice Trade and early European ocean explorers.  The narrative also includes a glossary.

Three supporting activity sheets

  • Pre-reading quiz (with answers)
  • Discussion questions
  • K.W. chart

Further Background Information

This section contains five pages of other fun facts and interesting information which didn’t make it to the narrative but which was too good to leave out.  For example this section includes a detailed description of why an old rope was a suitable substitute for toilet paper for sailors at sea and evidence of why keelhauling was not the sailors punishment of choice. 

 This story pack has been designed to be used in conjunction with a supporting power point.  Therefore you will also need to download the power point of the same name..Here Come the Europeans (ppt).  The story and the power point have been priced accordingly to allow you to download both.

The pack is introduced by Ned and Kelly.  Ned and Kelly are History Explorers and together their names form the name of one of Australia's most famous bushrangers, Ned Kelly.   Ned and Kelly love History and their stories make history fun.  Join them on their explorations of all things Historical.
