Students also made journals: Each person picked someone from the 1800's and wrote about a day in the life of a settler. We also made damper. (See recipe page)
The project details can be found on this page:
In Term 2: We learnt about the crossing of the Blue Mountains by Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson in 1813.

Timelines: Learning in Groups
Children worked in groups to make a Timeline that gave an overview of important historical events in Australian History.
Here are some photos of them working together.
Learning through Creating
Nicholas researched on the Internet about the First Fleet. He found a picture of one of the boats and made it out of paper, sticks and string. Then he looked up some of the names of boats in the First Fleet. Good job Nicholas!
Children were asked to write a journal showing a day in the life of a Colonial Settler or convict. Then they had to make a diorama to show what life was like for their chosen person. Some of the finished dioramas are pictured below.
