Dual place names in Australia

Students discuss landmarks commonly found on maps. They are divided into two groups, and asked to draw a map for a friend who hasn't been to the area. Group A may use street and place names, group B may not. Students discuss the role of place names and apply this to Australia where two place names are found on maps (Aboriginal and European).

Lesson Planet has been a reliable way to quickly prepare resources for sharing at team meetings. It has given me great confidence in my first year of teaching.
