Australia Day 2015

Featured on Friday 23 January, 2015

Calling all ryebuck teachers! Cross the briny foam and come a Waltzing Matilda with us and we know you'll be all in a glow (we're acting on the square).

Intrigue your students with the romance of Australian life in the 1800s with these resources. Advance their technical skill while learning about Australian animals, the gold rush, travel in the 1800s, bushrangers, shearing and more. It's a great way to celebrate Australia Day (26th January).

Because many of these Australian Folk songs are from the 1800s we've included an historical context and definition of words where appropriate so you can impress your students (you are a ryebuck teacher, after all).
