Lucky Undies: YEAR 1 - HASS - Evaluate

Little J feels lucky when he wears a new pair of yellow undies. After Old Dog destroys them, he loses his confidence. Big Cuz saves the day with the remnants of the undies made into a sweat band, and Little J finds confidence to play the basketball game and win the day.

Evaluate - Reflect on discussions, observations and information displayed in pictures and texts

Theme - GAMES & SUPERSTITIONS - 'off Country'

Evaluate what students have learnt (know and can do) from the activities in relation to the HASS_ History & Geography curriculum using Little J & Big Cuz, Episode 1 ‘Lucky Undies’, as stimulus for the learning . Assess the success of the module through reflecting on the students’:

  • knowledge of Aboriginal games and/or Torres Strait Islander games and non-Indigenous games, and how they are played.
  • knowledge of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous sports stars, including whether they are superstitious.
  • recognition and application of the criteria for awarding sporting honours and comparing these criterion to how people respond to others in daily life
  • ability to recognise that various people have different perspectives on achievement in sport, and how to support people to do their best.
  • understand of the importance of family, of who looks after them and the reasons why that group of people is important.

As a culmination of the learning in the module, students could:

  • Investigate the origins of various sports, and explain how they have changed their structure and strategies for playing, over time
  • Record changes in the way the game of AFL is played, from Aboriginal origins (Marn Grook) to today. Access information on
  • Sequence photographs of themselves with family members listing their relationship.
  • Arrange a display of artefacts associated with being superstitious.

Student evaluation tools

Students could self-evaluate their learning using a ‘monitoring’ journal (physical or digital) where the teacher lists the key understandings and concepts students needed to acquire through the module.

Students can use a learning worm to evaluate their work, adapted from link below:
