Are you looking for an interactive, syllabus-rich learning experience that meets key learning areas AND engages stage 2 students? Book our 360° virtual tour of convict era Cockatoo Island.
Built with the SITU360 virtual education tool, Convicts, Crimes & Cockatoo Island enables Stage 2 students to virtually explore our former convict prison (1839-69) using interactive 360° images and features. Your class will learn about the world events that led to the British colonisation of Australia and what it was like for convicts to live and work at Cockatoo Island.
Critically, they will gain experience identifying historical sources and assessing the reliability of evidence when performing historical enquiry. Students will develop these skills during the learning experience as they examine convict buildings, listen to prisoner diary entries, and engage with other historical sources including pictures.
