What’s In Your Suitcase?




During our immigration unit our class heard many stories about people and their suitcases, at the immigration museum we got to unpack many different suitcases and see what different people from different countries and with different cultures value enough to bring with them when moving to a new country. We even got to see Cuc Lam’s suitcase and hear about her amazing immigration story about how she came to Australia and what she brought with her. When we interviewed our family members we also learnt many things about our culture and our family’s journey to Australia and even what they brought in their suit cases. Below is some of our best work to demonstrate what we learnt! ๐Ÿ™‚

What would you bring with you in your suitcase if you were moving to another country?

What items are the most valuable to you? Why?
