History Detectives@Work

After the successful local history detective work at Fairfield Primary School and Tallarook Primary School it has been a lot of fun developing a History Detectives@Work incursion to bring local history into primary schools right across Victoria.

The two-hour incursion includes a detective training program, after which the students will become History Detectives@Work Associates and help me solve a local history mystery. 

Follow this tag to see more Victorian primary school History Detectives discovering local history story stories that really matter. We'll be visiting Wattleview Primary School next on 13 September.
