Year 9 Students Being Historians
Students in Year 9 have been busy in class as junior ‘historians’!
In past weeks, they have been researching the connection between the industrial revolution in 18th century Britain and the settlement of Australia. They each created a replica historical artefact from the time period and displayed this along with additional written and digital research.
Students then acted like historians; observing each other’s work with the aim of noticing key information from each artefact. They are now making links from this practical lesson to plan and prepare a written piece analysing this period of history.
