Hi every one this is my graph about the Multicultural Population of Victoria in 2011. We had a lesson on graphs and we also are researching Australia’s history for our inquiry so this was a way to combine the two. It was really interesting and a fun lesson.

I discovered the top 8 migrants coming to Victoria, and, as I expected, England came up in place number 1. surprisingly India was second. We had to make a graph like you see. This one is mine and if you click on it you can see a full sized picture. It’s really interesting and you’ll probably enjoy it.

Stay Tuned

 

 

 

 

Sovereign Hill

Standard

If you live in Victoria or New South Wales in Australia, you probably know what Sovereign Hill is. If you don’t then I’ll fill you in.

Sovereign Hill is a… Theme park? Tourist attraction? Historic Landmark? I don’t know. But it was fun and educational. We started by splitting up in groups. My group was pretty good and we learnt all about the gold rush and the Eureka Stockade in Bendigo.

I had heaps of fun gold panning, buying lollies, going to the old – fashioned school and learning about the mining.

It was a great experience and I would love to go there again.

My Immigration Museum Response

Standard

Hey everyone, recently me and my class went to the immigration museum. Here’s my response.

I feel that the Immigration Museum was a really good experience. I particularly connected with the timeline that wrapped around the room because it was really in depth  and it showed how people thought of the migrants and how their attitude improved. This got me thinking that our attitude has been slightly improving, until now because we’ve dropped our standards once more.
