  1. I don’t get the question, do you have to do some one that is dead or can it be a famous person from today or does it have to be someone from the Australia history? I don’t get what I have to do for the question????

    • Hi Sabrina!

      Its pretty much up to you. You might want to try and pick someone from early Australia since it’s what we are learning about at the moment. If you google ‘famous Australians’, you should be able to find a list of different people who you can read about and choose from. Someone like Ned Kelly might be an interesting one, or maybe one of the explorers like Matthew Flinders.

      Hope that helps!

  2. Hi Carly,

    It’s kind of similar to the ‘what did the person do’ question in a way, but they would be relevant to us today because they might have impacted the way we lived our lives somehow.

    It’s almost asking you why is what they did important and why did it make a difference.
