Year 5 & 9
HASS - History | History - Depth Study 1 & Depth Study 2
Facilitated by museum staff
Book in for our facilitated school program Travelling Back in Time where students use primary and secondary sources to explore colonial life in Australia.
In this facilitated school program, students interact with objects and listen to stores to discover how people lived in Australia in the past and how life has changed over the last 100 years.
A Cobb+Co staff member will introduce students to a large variety of objects and photographs that reflect life in colonial Australia and discuss how groups of people, such as free settlers, lived and worked during this time.
Students will explore the museum’s galleries to investigate how groups of people lived in Australia’s colonial past by examining a range of primary and secondary sources. They will participate in interactive activities to develop their skills in object and photographic interpretation to identify the main features of housing, sanitation, transport, education and living and working conditions. Students may play olden day games and role play in the Coach Stop interactive play area. Teachers will be required to direct this activity.
