This webquest is designed specifically for Stage 2 (Grade 3 and 4) students in NSW, Australia.
The students will need to have the following background knowledge in order to maximise the learning benefits of this webquest.
1) Mapping: students should have knowledge of the states, capital cities, rivers, mountain ranges and the location of important natural and built features of Australia.
2) Heritage sites: students should have an understanding of how sites qualify as heritage sites either on the National or World Heritage lists.
"Heritage is all the things that make up Australia's identity - our spirit and ingenuity, our historic buildings, and our unique, living landscapes. Our heritage is a legacy from our past, a living, integral part of life today, and the stories and places we pass on to future generations." (http://www.environment.gov.au/heritage/)
