NAIDOC Week books for schools

NAIDOC week has fallen in school holidays this year but we can still celebrate and share some great lessons, ideas and books when school returns.

Heal Country! the theme for 2021– calls for stronger measures to recognise, protect, and maintain all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and heritage

Here are some great books we can use across the stages & KLAs in primary classrooms

Consider these great teaching guides through the NAIDOC website: Teachers Guides | NAIDOC
