Australian History Mysteries Quiz

The Game is designed as a fun way to engage students in Australian history. Whilst there is an element of competition its main purpose is to introduce students to some famous people and key events that have shaped our country’s history. It can be used at all age levels and teachers may decide to use it as an introductory or an assessment/reflection activity.

Rob Coughlan,
History Teacher

‘I have been using Australian History Mysteries as part of my Year 3-6 History curriculum for the past year. What has stood out for me is the engagement my students display during our sessions. As a teacher and historian I find the format of these units of work allow students to make historical links through inquiry and research, which makes for an exciting History lesson. My students learn that History is not simply facts, but relationships, causes and consequences.’

Dave Arnold 
Project Manager, National Museum of Australia

'Thank you for the wonderful work of Ryebuck Media on the National Museum of Australia's recently launched education outreach website, Australia's Defining Moments Digital Classroom. Your fantastic digital suites of family and community history games, including the defining moments quiz, coupled with the virtual tour of the museum's landmarks gallery, are some of the most significant teaching and learning content on the site and provide teachers and their students with a tremendous variety of inquiry learning activities on a wide range of Australian curriculum relevant themes and topics. 
It is already regarded as the museum's most significant education outreach project since it opened to the public in march 2001.'

Victoria Rose,
Edenhope College

‘I love this resource. It is possibly the best that I have seen in some time. In addition I would like to add that it will inspire students with outstanding graphics and videos. I love the element of mystery which is so engaging. Students love solving mysteries and if it feels like a game it is so much better. The resource allows for all levels of ability and provides a refreshing insight into the History Curriculum.'
