It’s hiding in the rocks you don’t know where
Or underneath the ground somewhere down there
A sprinkle or a sparkle in the stream
A tiny little twinkle’s all I need
You better grab it fast
It’s never gonna last
You better keep a moving on before the day is past
I’ve finally got my chance
I’ll grab it with both hands
I’ll never wait or hesitate
You won’t get lucky if you’re late
It’s trickling down the rivers
Running down the streams
And if somebody finds some hear them scream!
Using the knowledge you have gained from Inquiry this term, answer the following question.
How did (INSERT HISTORICAL FIGURE’S NAME) have an effect on (NAME EVENT)?
For example, how did Peter Lalor have an effect on the Eureka Stockade and Australian democracy?
In order to answer this question, you need to do the following:
- Create a profile of your historical figure, e.g. Captain Arthur Philip, Peter Lalor, a specific convict, gold miner etc
- Write a biography of your chosen historical figure
- Write a historical recount of the event your figure was involved in
- Create a diorama of your historical event, e.g. Gold Rush, Industrial Revolution, First contact, Eureka Stockade OR create a suitcase with artifacts from that person (THIS IS HOMEWORK!)
