Miss Quinn

The wanderings and musings of a Geographer



As you will know from my lessons I am pretty enthusiastic about the aborigine culture and very interested in their history.  Your homework is to choose on aspect of their culture and history and tell me about it through one of the take away homework tasks.  http://www.missquinn.co.uk/?page_id=779

You shouldn’t try to cover all of the things we touched on in lesson, instead pick one area e.g. stolen generation, hunting and foraging, dreamtime, art and communication

Pick one of the tasks that you think you can do well, carry out some research and then go!

Some websites that might help






And the powerpoint and posters from lesson


aborigine info for round the room

    Hi Miss Quinn, I don’t think the link for the homework tasks is working, will it be on the display board outside your classroom?

    Yep any size- it’s totally how you think you can do it best- just not a sheet torn out of the page of your geography book!

    Hi ms! We have a homework due in on Thursday to create an animal/insect/bird that is adapted to the rainforest on paper. I can’t seem to find the link on your website for your PowerPoint to see the success criteria. Or is it in the geography common area? I’d really like to see the success criteria as I want to get top marks in my assessment

    Hi Hafsa
    It’s in the y9 ecosystem section under y9 adapted animal, let me know if you can’t see it and I’ll try reposting it further up
