On Thursday the 19th of May, the Grade Two students went on an excursion to Melbourne Museum and Science works to work on their ‘Discovery’ questions in CBL. Students who attended Science Works explored Space and Technology while the other students who went to the Museum explored Dinosaurs, the Earth and animals.
Everyone came back excited and ready to share their newly learnt knowledge with everyone explaining what we saw, what we liked and what we learnt about out topics. Here are some of the new information we came back to school knowing.
