Changing Worlds: A South Australian story is a web-based resource aligned with Years 4, 5 and 9 Australian Curriculum (AC): History and Arts. Selected artefacts, images and works of art from the South Australian Museum and Art Gallery of South Australia have been chosen to support educators' discussions with students about the colonisation/invasion of South Australia.
The accompanying education resource has been developed to guide educators' classroom use of Changing Worlds: A South Australian story. The themes explored in this resource may be complemented by a local art gallery or museum, or the Art Gallery of South Australia and South Australian Museum.
The Gallery’s Learning and Educator programs are supported by the Government of South Australia
through the Department of Education and Child
