In the Basket

In the Basket is a hands-on activity that empowers younger students to explore our Belief and Ritual gallery.

Each student is given an object which they can touch, open and investigate.

They are then asked to answer a specific list of relevant questions using the information provided in displays, with Museum guides on hand to provide additional information.

Later in the visit, pairs of students are asked to present their findings to their fellow classmates.

Each pair has a different object to report on, ensuring the subsequent discussions are lively, informative and unique.

This program is suitable for Years 5–6 (Victorian Curriculum) and Years 3–6 (Catholic).
