Years 6 & 7 and Years 8, 9 & 10
The program was developed because the CHOGM meeting was held in WA in October 2011. It looks at what is the Commonwealth, what is CHOGM, what does it do and how does it do it. This program is linked to the United Nations Millennium Goals and we then go on to look at some of the issues for various Commonwealth countries. We do this via a Bingo style game. Students work in pairs with a country and its issues. The culmination is looking at the groupings of issues eg. Global warming – countries in Oceania, child health – particularly African nations. There will be teachers’ notes linking to the Outcome statements.
