HERITAGE IN A BOX
The Heritage in a Box is a free education resource that has been developed as an aid for teachers in the instruction of Port Macquarie's local history reflecting Stage 2 of the HSIE syllabus. The kit includes a comprehensive teacher's guide providing historical detail, ideas for student activities, classroom posters, reference books, DVDs and excursion ideas. In additional to the kit is a box of historic artefacts. Schools are able to book out the box of museum objects for use in the classroom.
Why not use this in association with a visit to the Glasshouse to view the archaeological remains and a stop at the nearby Port Macquarie Museum?
Free. Bookings essential, email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Glasshouse History Hunt booklet can be used to turn a Glasshouse outing into a cool children’s discovery adventure... and teach them to ‘dig’ heritage in the process. Using an explorer’s map kids can search and discover fun facts about the history of Port Macquarie and the Glasshouse itself.
