The Australian Human Rights Commission’s (AHRC) creation of “Magna Carta- The Story of Our Freedom” resources have become even ‘cooler’ thanks to a new partnership with Cool Australia.
The “Magna Carta – The Story of Our Freedom” educational resources, written by the AHRC have been adapted to the Cool Australia website. The resources provide young Australians with the opportunity to understand and appreciate the evolution of human rights over the centuries, and the reasons why past generations fought so hard to advance and defend them.
The resources are mapped to the Australian Curriculum for History and Civics and Citizenship for Years 5 & 6, and for Years 9 & 10 and cover a range of general capabilities and cross-curricular priorities. The resources include links to an interactive infographic, a short animated video and include both teacher and student worksheets.
At the heart of these free to access lessons is the understanding that students can make a difference and have a lasting and substantial impact on the world and the future they want to create.
