Digital Cultural Adventures bring the Chinese Museum to your classroom!
Choose from a range of themed programs to learn about the Chinese Museum collection.
Suitable for primary and secondary levels, Digital Cultural Adventures address Australian and Victorian curriculum, such as History and Intercultural Understanding.
Students can learn about the amazing inventions from Ancient China, hear about dragons and their important role in Chinese New Year festivities, or step back in time to bear witness to the journeys and stories of the first Chinese Australians.
More interactive programs include a virtual Kung Fu lesson with an experienced instructor, and Chinese Lantern Making with specially printed red paper.
All programs are led by trained guides and facilitated via Webex, the recommended video-conferencing platform of the Department of Education, Victoria.
“An excellent presentation, moving at just the right pace, which thoroughly engaged the students. In a time when we cannot travel, this was a great way to experience the Chinese Museum.” Grade 6 Teacher, Chairo Christian School, August 2020
