Human Society and Its Environment – Stage 1 Foundation Statement

Change and Continuity
Students recount important family and community traditions and practices. They sequence events in the past and explain changes in their lives, in their communities and in other communities.
Activities: Special Days and Events People Celebrate, What History Tells Us About The Past
Cultures
Students explore the composition of a number of groups, including Aboriginal peoples, in their community and recognise that groups have specific identifying features, customs, practices, symbols, religion, language and traditions. They acquire information about their local community by direct and indirect experience and communicate with others using various forms of electronic media.

Environments
Students make comparisons between natural, heritage and built features of the local area and examine the human interaction with these features. They investigate the relationship between people and environments including the relationship between Aboriginal peoples and the land. Students use the language of location in relative terms and construct and use pictorial maps and models of familiar areas.
Social Systems and Structures
Students identify roles, responsibilities and rules within the family, school and community and explore their interaction. They describe how people and technologies link to produce goods and services to satisfy needs and wants.
