This learning and teaching resource provides a range of viewpoints and works to challenge current perceptions of the arrival of Captain James Cook and the HMB Endeavour at Kamay Botany Bay in 1770. It is an inclusive resource, placing value on the Aboriginal perspective to "balance the history books" by looking both from the ship and from the shore. This learning resource offers cross curricular activities for Kindergarten to year 10. Although grouped by years, activities may be suitable for other years and subjects. This resource has 8 components for various stages. They are: 1. Meeting at Kamay: Kindergarten to Year 2; 2. Botany of Kamay: Years 3 and 4; 3. Waters of Kamay: Years 3 and 4; 4.
