Cartoon perspectives on Australia Day 2004

In this activity students investigate sixteen different 2004 Australia Day cartoons. They are asked to analyse the focus, style, attitude, mood, target, symbolism, caricature and scale of each one by selecting from a range of clickable responses. They can then access and print a summary of their responses to these cartoons in preparation for a class discussion and a class synthesis exercise.
