For the past three years, teams of fieldworkers have visiting selected primary schools around Australia for periods of one to two weeks to observe and document the play of children at lunchtime and recess. They have been part of the Childhood, Tradition and Change national project funded by the Australian Research Council, with assistance from the National Library of Australia and Museum Victoria. A multidisciplinary team of scholars from the University of Melbourne, Deakin University and Curtin University are now analysing the fieldwork data in the first national research project addressing continuity and change in Australian children’s playlore in the early 21st century.
