Explore the role of story in sharing and preserving histories. Uncover the way collections can hold stories and memories by exploring the beautiful Mortlock Chamber. Learners will design and make a personal memory box to capture their unique stories. Designed and facilitated by an experienced early years teacher.
History is made up of many, many stories and this program engages children in examining their own personal stories and histories. They will explore the State Library to uncover the way collections hold memories and create take-home memory boxes to capture their own unique stories.
The learning experiences are aligned with the Australian Curriculum, with a particular emphasis on the learning area of Humanities and Social Sciences: History, and the general capabilities of literacy, intercultural understanding and critical and creative thinking. Teaching for Effective Learning principles strongly underpin this learning design.
Elements of this program have been co-designed with children, for children, to provide relevant learning experiences that effectively engage young learners.
Tools and materials are provided free of charge by the State Library of South Australia.
