Museum of Brisbane

Object Handling

Object Handling

Students step into the role of a Museum Curator as, magnifying glass in hand, they discover and investigate original objects and photographs from the past.

This program provides opportunities for students to develop historical understanding through key concepts including continuity and change, cause and effect, perspectives and empathy. Understand how toys, transport and technology have changed over time with object-based learning.
