Year 6 possible research areas:
To begin with open up the following timeline: http://www.globalwords.edu.au/units/Refugees_UPY6_html/documents/Timeline.pdf
Begin by exploring the Timeline: Vietnamese immigration to Australia from ABC News and answer the following questions.
• How many Vietnamese people were there in Australia before 1975?
• Why did the ‘wave’ of Vietnamese refugees begin in 1975?
• By 1981 what percentage of Vietnamese arrivals had come by boat?
Next view some of the images from the collection of photographs from the National Library of Australia, which documents the arrival of Vietnamese ‘boat people’ in Darwin in 1977. What information can be gathered from these photos? Consider features of the photographs such as the cramped conditions on the small boats, the lack of amenities and the presence of young children on the boats.
Finailly explore the interactive timeline created by SBS to accompany their series Once Upon a Time in Cabramatta, which shows some key events in the history of the Vietnamese community in Australia from the Vietnam War to 2012.
Watch and we will discuss the video Refugee kids from ABC’s Behind the News.
The video provides background information about why refugees come to Australia and the adjustments some young refugees have to make after arriving in Australia.
