Identifying primary and secondary sources

Years 5 – 8
Drawing on the NFSA collection, we utilise news, current affairs, newsreel, oral histories and broadcast to understand first-hand reporting, recollection, memory, fact, opinion, conjecture and re-creation as they contribute towards us building our own evolving Australian identity.

Indigenous representation on screen

Years 8 – 10
Our First Australians’ recognition by, and role in, society has been mirrored in the way they have been depicted as characters on the screen. We look at ten iconic roles for Indigenous Australian on screen and talk about the progression of Australian social and cultural history.

Sound out of the box

Years 5 – 8
From wax cylinders to vinyl to tape to digital, we discuss and discover how sound technologies have changed over the course of the 20th century and beyond.
