SO WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNT? CAN YOU NOW ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS?
Did the colonies agree to Federate? When? Why?
Did they share any issues of concern that stopped them joining the Federation?
Did they share any issues of concern that made them want to Federate?
Did they all agree at the same time?
How much of an influence was Sir Henry Parkes?
