Finding documents on the Australian Curriculum website:

More PDFs  will be uploaded in the months ahead. To locate PDFs find them located in the "subject" menu, not the Learning area menu. (HASS is a “learning area” for Years F-10 with five “subjects” under that umbrella. Note how the subject titles are now prefaced with F-6/7 or 7-10). Details are presented at the top of the HASS opening page. To find the curriculum, information and PDFs for each subject, go to the “Subjects” menu BELOW the Learning area menu – http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/humanities-and-social-sciences/introduction
