We were also able to create more links around immigration, culture, story and identity as a result of our experiences at the Immigration Museum. Immigration stories were an important focus that day, but we also engaged highly with the "Identity: Yours, Mine and Ours" exhibition.

Today we revisited our hexagonal thinking posters and we noticed that we had made a few errors when placing the hexagons last time. After our term of learning about Australian history, focusing particularly on the gold rush, we now know much more about the significant events of Australian History. A particular group we changed was the gold rush and topics surrounding it because we learnt that it was an important part in Australian history because the Eureka Stockade was Australia's first claim of democracy. A visit to Sovereign Hill supported our learning around this topic.
