Melbourne Museum Excursion

As part of our First Contacts unit of work, the grade four students and teachers visited the Melbourne Museum.

We had an early start, and it was a very cold and frosty morning. In fact, it was the coldest Melbourne day of 2015 so far!

Highlights of our day included:

As students explored the exhibitions, many took photos of the displays, models, artefacts and information plaques to capture and document their experience. It was fantastic to see the students’ enthusiasm and excitement as they travelled through the museum, taking in the sights and discussing their observations with each other.

Here are some photos from our day!
