A special post by Taylor and Sierra in 3/4 KR
On Monday the 5th of August the 3/4 children went to the Melbourne Museum as part of our Inquiry unit, Earth Explorers. We got there by bus.
We all went to different parts of the Museum at different times but this is what we saw.
One room was a Marine room. We saw a giant squid, crabs and sea shells with funny music inside.
Another room was the Rainforest room. There were tall trees and birds. There was one bird that collected only blue things for its nest.
The next room we went into was the Crystals room. There were glow in the dark crystals, rubies, 7 different types of sapphires and much more.
Next we went into the Dinosaur room. We found about 5 different dinosaur skeletons. As part of this we also had a teacher tell us about fossils and it was very interesting.
The last room was the Melbourne room. We learnt about Pharlap, how different suburbs came to be and mainly about the history of Melbourne.
It was a great day. Thanks Teachers
