Mandurah Children's Map
The Children’s Map of Mandurah gives children in grades 4 - 7 an historical overview of the place in which they live. A copy of the map is available free from the Museum.
The map focuses on the National Curriculum. It examines ‘Time, Continuity and Change’ by identifying existing heritage buildings in inner-city Mandurah, and changes which have occurred to the natural landscape over the years.
Information on our local environment including the waterways, migrating birds and animals are featured in the text and illustrations. Noongar language and the locations of some traditional campsites have also been included wherever possible on the map, giving an overview of the richness of cultural heritage in the Peel Region for Primary School Children.
Accompanying the map is a student booklet that has a variety of activities for students to complete about Mandurah’s built, natural and cultural heritage.
