In this unit, we focus on the ways in which core aspects of the Humanities curriculum such as History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship, and Economics and Business can be taught in creative and integrated ways in the primary classroom. We also draw upon interdisciplinary perspectives to inform an approach to Humanities teaching and learning that develops young learners’ knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures, Asia and Australia’s Engagement with Asia, and Sustainability, as well as their ethical and/or intercultural capabilities.
