Our Big Day Out -Melbourne Museum

Last Friday our students spend their day at the Melbourne Museum as a part of our Inquiry into our  First People and  First Fleet arrivals.

Here are some thoughts and discoveries from our students.

Mia – ‘ I learned that today in Australia there are 240 languages spoken by Aborigines.’

Alyssa – ‘ I learned that the aboriginals who lived in Melbourne got a possum skin for each year of their life.’

Elva – I though it was an amazing trip and I discovered that ….

Mr. Crowe –  ‘ I found out that over 60,000 years this land we call Australia sustained the lives of around 1.5 billion people.’ 

Olivia – ‘I discovered that the aboriginals found and wore possum skins and they also wondered why the White people came to their country.’
