Year 9 – senior secondary 

The Memorial Boxes are an ideal teaching resource for First and Second World War depth studies, in addition to exploration of Australia’s involvement in post-45 conflict and peacekeeping operations. The boxes allow students to gain a deeper historical understanding about the causes, effects, and significance of these events from a range of perspectives. The hands-on resources will also advance students’ skills in interpreting and evaluating information from various sources as well as drawing conclusions about their usefulness based on their origin, purpose, and context.
