Students are introduced to the First Peoples of Victoria and learn some of the protocols associated with this aspect of our shared history.

Students will be provided with a trail booklet to focus their attention and guide them through the exhibition. Teachers should follow the trail on the map included in the booklet, which can also be used back at school to reflect on their learning in the space.

At this year level students focus on the practices of daily life and the objects used to live sustainably on the land. They focus on family life and how children lived and learned alongside their parents.

Students can work in pairs and discuss different aspects of daily life as they document their journey through the exhibition.
