To help you use this exhibition as a basis for your teaching, we have nearly finished preparing a series of learning resources based on themes related to some of the images in the exhibition. Many enable to to meet your requirements to incorporate Indigenous perspectives across the curriculum.
Some activities are designed to do in the gallery and others at school. Downloadable pdfs will be available very soon.
We would love to hear how you’ve used the exhibition in your classes and would be happy to share your innovative lesson plans. We intend to set up a Facebook community soon where schools can share their work and inspire others. Watch this space for more.
