This program provides opportunities for students to engage with historical and cultural content relevant to:

  1. Chinese migration to Australia during the Gold Rush era – opportunities and challenges

  2. Post Gold Rush - the establishment of a Chinese community in Australia

This virtual incursion introduces students to artefacts from the Chinese Museum’s collection and brings them into the classroom. Students will engage with content that answers the inquiry questions:

  • Why and how did Chinese people first migrate to Australia in the 1800s?
  • What was life like on the colonial goldfields?
  • Which occupations did Chinese people choose to work in after the goldrush? 

Benefits include:

  • Cost-effective and accessible for all classes
  • Flexible delivery and conducted in your classroom
  • Curriculum aligned teaching and learning outcomes
  • Interactive activities to excite and engage students with age/level appropriate historic and cultural content, including fun pre and post activities. 
  • Pre and post activities to consolidate student learning experiences, are included in the museum's LMS. 
Thank you so much for the experience yesterday. The session was easy to connect to and hear.  The level of interaction, through asking questions and the postcard activity, was good for engagement.  The chosen images were interesting and led to some rich discussion.  Grade 4-6 Teacher, Daylesford Dharma School
