The Past in the Present

Students have been exploring a unit on the Chaffey Trail visiting a range of sites including the Old Mildura Homestead, Rio Vista Gallery and Lock 11. Students are  discovering differences and similarities between their own daily lives and life during their parents’ and grandparents’ childhoods. In particular they have been investigating how toys have changed over time. Engaging students outside the classroom has definitely enhanced their learning. Students enjoyed dressing up in Victorian period costume and exploring key historical themes. Click on Gallery for more photos.
