Set sail on this virtual excursion to discover more about the First Fleet. This virtual excursion focuses on the experience of convicts on the First Fleet and the early years in the colony. Using primary sources from State Library collections, students will investigate the journey of the First Fleet, the everyday life of convicts and touch on the experiences of Aboriginal people.
Learning from home
Students can connect to our virtual excursions when learning from home. As a teacher, you will only need to register once to receive a link you can share with your students.
During the session, students will be able to ask questions by writing in the chat and they will not share any audio or video. All messages will be visible to the presenters but not to any other students.
When students use the link to join the virtual excursion they may be asked to download Zoom if they don’t already have it installed. They do not need to set up a Zoom account to participate.
