In this joint program between the Migration Museum and Ayers House, students will explore daily life for children in the 19th Century.
1. What was life like for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Peoples before the arrival of the Europeans?
2. Why did the Europeans settle in Australia?
3. What was the nature and consequence of contact between Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Peoples and early traders, explorers and settlers?
Who is migrating to South Australia right now? Where are migrants coming from, and why? How is migration experienced? How does government policy shape migration journeys?
These simple questions have very complex answers.
