Where to start


After viewing the series, a great place to start is to look though the Decade timeline. It is organised by decade to match the My Place episodes. The timeline has interactive navigation that allows you to slide through Australian history and take a look at both the major events and some not-so-famous incidents that underpin the stories in the series.

Next, browse through the extensive Teaching activities. This is where you will find teaching activities and student activity sheets for years 3–6 in History and English. Activities align with selected clips from the My Place episodes. Clips and stills can be searched by theme, which will automatically display those that relate to the selected theme.

If you want to know what other teachers are doing with My Place, you can chat in the Our Place teacher's forum. Here you can discuss your teaching ideas and upload students' stories.

Finally, be sure to check out Behind the scenes for production information including episode synopses, scripts, interviews, a Clips bank and a Stills gallery.
