Local history education resources

Moreton Bay Region Libraries has developed a range of teacher and student local history resources with Australian Curriculum links for Year 5. The resources include lesson plans and library based activities to guide students through the research process and images, photographs, maps and glossaries, to help students and teachers understand significant events in Moreton Bay’s history.


The Pioneers of Moreton Bay resources have been developed to assist primary and secondary teachers and students when researching the European pioneers of the Moreton Bay area.

Each resource is aligned to the Australian Curriculum, and while designed for use with Year 5 history, they can easily be modified to suit any Year level and English studies.

The Teacher Resource provides lesson plans, pre and post library visit activities, background information including pioneer biographies and supporting materials. The Student Resources provide visual aids, activity sheets and a glossary. The Student Workbook provides a framework for preparing and writing a research report.
