Prep – Year 2
HASS - History
Facilitated by museum staff
Book in for our facilitated school program Fairy Stones to Gummingurru where students learn about the significance of a local cultural site.
This facilitated school program introduces students to Jean's story and invites them to share in her excitement as she discovers and explores the local stone arrangement site at Gummingurru. Students then explore the artefacts and stories in The Binangar Centre to learn about the Traditional Owners of the Toowoomba region. Storytelling and hands-on artefacts are a major focus of this program.
A Cobb+Co staff member will share an interactive story about Jean, a young girl who discovered the sacred Aboriginal stone arrangement site, Gummingurru, on her family farm near Meringandan.
Students will explore The Binangar Centre and interact with hands-on objects to further investigate the diversity of Aboriginal cultures. Teachers will be required to direct this activity.
See our Visit as a school page for information on visiting the museum and booking a group into a program.
