Lucky Undies: YEAR 2 - 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 - Draw simple conclusions based on discussions, observations and information displayed in pictures and texts and on maps
Theme - HERO & HEROINE
Evaluate what students have learnt (know and can do) from the activities in relation to the HASS_ History and 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:
- identifying primary and secondary sources of information
- explaining why sporting superstars are considered heroic
- applying their knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal heroes/heroines and/or Torres Strait Islander heroes/heroines to redesign Australian currency
- understanding how superstitions are universal and can still be applied to our everyday lives
- identifying and applying different perspectives to stories
As a culmination of the learning in this module, students could
- discover the sporting stars in their local community, or sporting stars who went to the school, and produce profiles for each
- create a picture book on a ‘superstition’ still practiced or believed in their own family, using sound effects, music and spoken words
- produce a chronological album of significant Aboriginal people/s and/or Torres Strait Islander people/s and significant non-Indigenous Australians, listing their details and achievements.
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.
- Where applicable, construct a self-evaluation as a poll, rating their responses using:
Use Early Years writing using rubrics to provide feedback to students.
Students can use a learning worm to evaluate their work, adapted from:
