Only two speakers to share this time. One of our speakers was unwell and was not able to present their book talk.
Our video this week was chosen to help us think about our latest classroom history questions. We are researching our migration history focusing on those who came to Australia after Federation occurred in 1901. Our speaker chose to share a video from the ABC Splash site which was originally shown on BTN. (Follow the link to see this video as we are unable to embed it in our post.) It shared the story of a recent migrant family from Liberia. He hoped that it would inspire us to reflect on how difficult it might be to arrive in a new country where everything is strange and unfamiliar.
Our word this week was also chosen to link with our history questions. When lots of people move out of an area all at once it could be called an exodus.
