Schools

This is a virtual excursion for Stage 3 students. 

Join the rush to learn about striking it lucky in the 1850s. We’ve unearthed fabulous primary sources and inspiring stories from the goldfields to share with you. In this interactive 45-minute virtual excursion students will explore the following key inquiry questions: 

- What do we know about the lives of people in Australia’s colonial past and how do we know? 

- What were the significant events and who were the significant people that shaped Australian colonies? 

Students can connect to our virtual excursions when learning from home. As a teacher, you will only need to register once to receive a link you can share with your students.

Learning from home 

Students can connect to our virtual excursions when learning from home. As a teacher, you will only need to register once to receive a link you can share with your students.   

During the session, students will be able to ask questions by writing in the chat and they will not share any audio or video. All messages will be visible to the presenters but not to any other students. 

When students use the link to join the virtual excursion they may be asked to download Zoom if they don’t already have it installed. They do not need to set up a Zoom account to participate.  

  Further instructions for joining a Zoom webinar are available in Zoom’s Webinar FAQ.
