EXCURSION TO BOTANICAL GARDENS.
During our excursion at the Botanical Gardens, we walked around with a guide, and we learnt about different plants. We went through a large tree where indigenous people collected nuts to eat.
We also had a demonstration on how to make string from a leaf, I really enjoyed learning how to make the string. After the string making the whole class learnt how the indigenous people used to kill their animals by using traps. My favourite part of the day was when we did a painting with our fingers.
After the Botanical gardens we went on the bus to the Koorie Heritage Trust we split into groups we got a man that took us around the area, first we went to look at how they made the shields then we talked about the Yarra River. After that we went inside to look at boomerangs and possum skin.
I liked the bit when we did the painting, I hope we get to go there again.
