Captain Cook and the Secret Instructions video conference

History Stage 2

Through the reading of a text students will come to know Captain Cook, the purpose of his journey, his skills in using navigational instruments and receive a wax sealed letter with the secret instructions to follow in their school grounds. after constructing a telescope, they will use a compass to follow the special orders to explore their school grounds with new eyes. They will observe and draw flora specimens just as Joseph Banks and Sydney Parkinson did when they landed in Australia.

VC sessions at 9:30am, 11:30am or 1:30pm for one hour.

All bookings can be made through Dart Connections
