Lesson guides

Lesson guides assist educators and teachers to understand how to plan their sessions and activities they can run.

These guides and activities are important to educate others about the Census; what it is and why it's important. The Census helps us learn from the past, understand the present and plan for the future.


Activities will suit students learning English, culturally and linguistically diverse audiences and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students as well as anyone with an interest in the Census.
