Series Information

Macmillan History resources support teachers to plan and implement history inquiries with ease and confidence.

Macmillan History is designed to satisfy the two interrelated strands of the Australian Curriculum, the NSW Syllabus and the Victorian Curriculum:

  • Historical Knowledge and Understanding
  • Historical and Inquiry Skills

Guided Inquiry Approach for History

Utilising a skills-based guided-inquiry framework, Macmillan History provides a structured approach for investigating the key inquiry questions of the curriculum.

Resources provide multiple pathways for the differentiated classroom. Assessment rubrics are available for each stage to identify students’ progress.

Year 3 - Diverse Communities, Places and People

Macmillan History - Year 3 resources assist students to learn about the historical features of their communities, through the exploration of diverse communities and places and the contributions people make.

Year 4 - How People, Places and Environments Interact

Macmillan History - Year 4 resources assist students to learn about how people, places and environments have interacted in the past and present. Resources focus on world exploration and colonisation, and the e ects these activities had on Australia.

Year 5 - Australian Colonial Communities

Macmillan History - Year 5 resources assist students to develop historical understanding about Australian colonial communities in the 1800s. Resources focus on the establishment of British colonies in Australia and what life was like for di erent groups of people in that period, and the reasons people chose to come to Australia. The resources also examine how colonial settlement changed the environment, and the signi cant events and people that shaped Australia.

Year 6 - Australia's Connections with a Diverse World

Macmillan History - Year 6 resources assist students to learn about Australia’s connections with a diverse world, particularly after 1900. Resources focus on the development of Australia’s path to Federation and the changes in Australian society throughout the 1900s re ected in experiences of democracy, government and citizenship for di erent groups. There is also a focus on the development of Australia through the contributions of notable individuals and organisations.
