A facilitated 45 minute workshop in which students consolidate their learning about the rationale for sending the First Fleet to NSW in 1788, the experience of different groups, the voyage and the impact of European settlement for the Aboriginal people of the region. Particular emphasis is placed on the experience of the convicts below decks as students explore our Life On Board exhibition and unpack their rations and conditions.
Where are they? What are they doing? Does behaviour change over time? Using various animal species, learn and practice a range of monitoring techniques.
