This term Year 3 and 4 have been studying Armidale’s Heritage, looking at the concept of continuity and change. Last week we participated in a heritage walk around the CBD, identifying a number of historical buildings. The students discovered buildings dating back to the early 1800’s.
After taking photos and recording interesting facts about original construction, refurbishments and new developments, each group used their images to construct a large timeline.
This historical inquiry links to our study of the picture book My Place. Students have produced written pieces responding to the text and made insightful connections between the two units of work. We are definitely looking forward to seeing where our inquiry based learning takes us.
