Terms 1-4 Monday–Friday
Minimum 15 students
Maximum 30 students
Students are introduced to the First Peoples of Victoria and learn some of the protocols associated with this aspect of our shared history.
In the staff led program groups of students are provided with an iPad and use the Book Creator app to create their own story about how the cultural practices of the First Peoples shaped their identity and struggle for freedom. They are also provided with a trail booklet to document their findings.
Students are given specific tasks to complete which encourage them to discuss how the values and beliefs of the First Peoples have been passed down over 2000 generations and beyond, with a particular focus on the struggle for rights and the freedom in their country.
All equipment is provided during this museum staff-led program. The films will be sent back to the teacher. Films might be used as a class resource or assessment task.
