Prezi: Australian Federation

This week we will be beginning our decades research project, which we will be presenting using the tool Prezi. On Thursday we will learn how to use Prezi. To show you how it can be done, I had a go at making this Prezi project on the holidays. It also gives you a chance to learn about Australian Federation, which occurred in our decade.

Summarising the 20th Century

Over the past two days we have been working on researching the different decades of the 20th Century in preparation for choosing a decade to study as our inquiry unit. Everyone has been working with a partner to investigate a decade and create a mindmap using the program Inspiration. You can see each of the mindmaps here or by clicking on the links below. When we were complete, we shared our information and combined all of the mindmaps together in to one giant mindmap, which you can see below. In order to view the detail on the mindmap, you will need to save the map by right clicking this link and selecting “Save As…”.
