The MilbaDjunga interactive online primary and secondary units
of work have been developed to support teachers of Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander students to teach consumer and financial
literacy - a core life skill. The units were piloted by teachers
with their students across Qld, NT and WA and have been revised to
include their feedback and to align to the Australian
The units of work feature colourful graphics, audio and
interactive activities. They can also be used by non Indigenous
students to enrich their knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander culture and history - one of the Australian Curriculum's
Cross Curriculum Priorities.
The Year 5 and 6 unit'Do I need
it? Do I want it? How can I get it?' provides guidance on how
to set up a classroom economy which gives students the skills to
achieve their goals by getting into the habit of earning and
budgeting while in a supported school environment. Skills needed
for bill paying, shopping and banking are practised with students
learning about budgeting and saving.
The Year 9 unit'How Can I
Start My Own Business?' builds on the knowledge and skills
gained in the primary unit and gives students the opportunity to
explore the different ways that people can get money, why people
work, how money comes into communities and how, by starting their
own small business, they can make money and benefit their community
at the same time.
The units are supported by extensive Teacher notes, online
activities and student materials and a set of videos.
