Melbourne Museum excursion packages have been designed to optimise student learning within a specific content area or theme. Each package provides a suggested program for a fun and interactive day at the museum that also meets specific curriculum outcomes.
In the My Grandmother’s Toybox staff-led session children will have the opportunity to handle toys from an intergenerational toybox with toys that have been handed down through the generations of one family.
The program introduces students to the concept of change and continuity, how life was in the past and how it is different today. The hands-on interactive staff-led session culminates with a scavenger hunt trail of the Melbourne Story exhibition.
Students will easily achieve the progression point 3 for VELS history after this session.
