Year 6 students explore the Australian migration experience over a term and then host a ‘Stories from my Suitcase’ exhibition to families and friends.

They examine documents, websites and personal histories to create characters that have migrated to Australia from many countries and at different times. Working in teams, they develop characters from a specific country and delve into the cultural aspects including language, costume and food that is unique to the country their character has migrated from. Students record their stories, add music and sound effects to enhance the experience.
