Year 2 History Launch Day

Year 2 students had a History Launch Day to participate in a range of activities related to this term’s History unit of work ‘The Past in the Present’. Students came dressed up in the colour of the Aboriginal Flag of red, yellow and black or as an archaeologist or in clothes different to now that were worn in the past.

The children experienced what it was like in the past by participating in an archaeologist dig, making a classroom garden, creating tools and dot painting artworks inspired by Aboriginal art and culture.
