Today students in the OC went on an excursion to the Newcastle Museum to participate in the Mysteries of History program as the culmination of our HSIE topic Enigmas. Students were able to demonstrate their fantastic investigative and research skills to solve problems and looked at some remarkable local artefacts. We also enjoyed a visit to the Supernova exhibition and the BHP lightshow. A big thank you to Emma Best who delivered our program today. Well done to our students for their enthusiastic participation!
We have had such fun in HSIE this term exploring a variety of different mysteries from history as part of our Enigmas unit. During our studies we have viewed segments from several different documentaries. I have been so impressed by the interest and enthusiasm from students towards these topics that I’ve added the links to the videos (plus a few extras) below for those who are keen to learn more. Happy watching!
Don’t forget – our Mysteries of History excursion next Wednesday as Newcastle Museum!
