The Humanities

School programs and resources

This interactive presentation allows children to explore  community diversity through stories told with objects, artefacts and costumes.

To further enhance children’s understanding of themselves and the society they live in, the presentation is followed by a self-directed activity. Children work in small groups with teachers and accompanying adults taking a discovery trail through the museum.

The Little Red Suitcase option is available for Year 2 students.

The Big Brown Bag option is available for Year 3–4 students, who each receive their in-Museum activities in a take-home miniature suitcase.
