Part 2: 1/2 History Excursion to Ripponlea

Last Friday the 1/2’s went to Ripponlea for the second part of their excursion where they were learning about the ‘olden days’. The children were immersed in many fun activities such as olden day house work, where they discovered how hard it used to be without dishwashers and washing machines. They also played olden games like quoits, skipping, croquet, skittles and drop-the-handkerchief With all of this wonderful new information, the 1/2 historians are now applying it to their InquiRE unit, ‘How has our Australia changed?’, and looking at when their parents and grandparents were young to see what similarities or differences they can uncover!
