Teacher Resources

In the Classroom

The Unearthed – Mining Stories from the Mid West education resource includes links to the curriculum, student activities for both in the classroom or as part of your excursion to the WA Museum Geraldton, and a selection of recommended websites for further information on a range of topics related to mining.

The range of activities in the resource have been designed for Years 6 - 9 but can be adapted to suit other year groups.

These education materials in conjunction with the Unearthed exhibition website including the pictorial timeline, first-hand stories of mining life in the Mid West and the Mining to Magnate quizzes will provide your students with a broader understanding of both historical and contemporary mining in the region, and a comprehensive background to any student wanting to undertake further investigation into the theme.
