Read the following passage carefully and do the activities that follow.

About 40,000 years ago people came to Australia from Asia. They lived by hunting and collecting insects and plants. They didn’t grow crops or build houses. These people are called aborigines. Australia wasn’t found by other people until 1606. a Dutchman called William Jansz landed in the far north. He didn’t know it was an island. In 1770 the British explorer James Cook landed on the east coast. He called the place where he landed Botany Bay because of all the strange new plants.

He studied the people,plants and strange animals and claimed the land for Britain. In 1788 the British government sent 750 prisoners and 250 guards to live in Australia. Many stayed and began to build houses and to farm. Others followed because British prisons were very full. Life was very hard. But in 1851 people discovered gold. As soon as people heard this, they left their homes in Europe and sailed to Australia, trying to find gold and become rich.
