Today we had the privilege of going to the Melbourne Museum. Our librarian organised our excursion as part of our Book Week activities. We were able to take the i-pads to capture our journey. The purpose of our journey was to learn about Australian History, so the First People’s exhibit was perfect. Here we learnt about Indigenous Australians – their history, customs, culture and artwork! We were so excited. From there we moved to the Forest Gallery, where we saw nature at its very best, viewing many small bugs, insects and birds in their natural habitat. Our next stop was the Science and Life gallery where we viewed dinosaurs, bugs, underwater creatures and animals in the wild. This was very interesting and certainly captured our imagination. We also saw the Dynamic Earth exhibit. We put on our 3-D glasses and were transported to a land of earthquakes and underwater eruptions. We really enjoyed this exhibit. Our final stop was the Melbourne Story gallery. Here we were able to relive the history of Melbourne, and it brought back much of what we had studied in Term One. It was an enjoyable and very educational day.
