Your focus question is: What is Australia's national identity?

You have also have been given the task of designing the national symbols of Australia. You will need to submit a new flag, anthem, and national colours that encompass what you think it is to be Australian.

Your success will be evaluated on:
  • Your understanding of what is Australia's national identity.
  • How well this is reflected in your presentation.
  • The quality of information you have collected in your group journal.
  • How well you have worked as a team and shared the workload.
  • The work put into your final presentation.

Your work will be displayed in an expo at the end of the unit. Where parents, family members, teachers, and other students will be invited to come and see your ideas. Your teachers will be on the lookout for the most eye catching and unique presentations to share out the following end of term school assembly for the junior years.
