Working in small groups, students explore objects, artefacts and documents revealing a story from a particular wave of immigration. The groups share their discovered stories, creating a timeline of migration to Australia which can be taken back to school.

Students have time in the museum galleries to explore, in more detail, specific stories of migration. They receive workbook in which to record their findings.
