The Australians at War education kit is an integrated package that draws on the resources of each of the eight episodes of the television series as well as this website.
The education kit, as with all components of the Australians at War project, examines the effects of war on the lives of Australians and how the nation has been shaped by those experiences.
Maintaining the thematic and dramatic structure of the television series, the education kit explores the ideas and themes in a way that complements the National Curriculum Profile (Studies of Society and Environment).
The education kits have been forwarded to all of the nations' primary and secondary schools and are also available for download below.
