Resources for Year 7


These free ABS learning resources are relevant to the year 7 classroom, including those that use CensusAtSchool data and tools. These learning resources include shorter activities as well as longer 'projects' which contain several tasks around a theme so that your students can delve deep into a topic, combined with teacher solutions and a marking rubric aligned with the Australian Curriculum.

These learning resources have been coded to provide suggested starting points for alignment with the new Australian Curriculum (AC). In order to facilitate deep learning, the AC code is provided as a link to the Content Description by learning area, matched to an appropriate learning resource. You can access a range of ABS Education Services resources including CensusAtSchool resources, through Scootle.

We welcome your feedback. We're keen to know if you recommend a learning resource to be linked to a different Content Description. Please provide your feedback via email to Education Services education@abs.gov.au or CensusAtSchool - Australia at censusatschool@abs.gov.au
