The Melbourne Story exhibition presents a snapshot of the history of Melbourne from early contact between white settlers and local Indigenous peoples. The historical stories, artefacts, soundscapes, images and interactive components that make up the exhibition provide students with a unique opportunity to look at the unfolding Melbourne story through the eyes of its citizens: rich and poor; Indigenous peoples, settlers, immigrants and refugees; young and old; those who found “the good life” and those who struggled to survive.
The Melbourne Story Education Kit provides teachers with exhibition notes, a range of activities for use in different subject disciplines (History, Geography, Economics, Social Education) links to extension activities, as well as a curriculum map of how these activities correspond with AUSVELS levels and domains.
