Immigration Museum: Immigration Museum

Immigration Museum: Immigration Museum | Australian History | Scoop.it
Moving stories of people from all over the world who have migrated to Australia.

Via Haley Turner
Taryn Coxall's insight:

The Imigration Museum website provides free and easily accesible information surrounding all the issues and stories assosiated with immigration into Australia. 

The website provides a number of educaitonal resources accesible from years prep to year 12, divided into these relevant sections. 

The website takes students on a "Journey of discovery"  exploring the themes of immigration, cultural diversity and Australian identity in an age appropiate and enaging way. 

the immigration museum also provides opportunity for a range of free resources for both students and teachers and a range of free excursions relating to immigration and Australian History. 

I would reccomment this resource to any year level with a foccus on immigration.

Haley Turner's curator insight, August 11, 2013 3:50 AM

“The Immigration Museum explores the stories of real people from all over the world who have migrated to Victoria.

Located in the Old Customs House in the heart of the city, the museum re-creates the real-life stories of coming to Australia with a rich mix of moving images, personal and community voices, memories and memorabilia.

From the reasons for making the journey, to the moment of arrival in a new country, and the impact on indigenous communities, these stories are sometimes sad, sometimes funny, but always engaging.”

This website is great as it provides links to other websites in relation to various immigration topics under the “Discovery Centre” link. This would be most useful for research projects in upper primary.
