Our Triple Excursion!

Last week, 2C went on an exciting triple excursion. We went to the Lego Centre, the museum and the State Library.
First we went to the lego centre. We learnt about toys and how they move. We built three different toys with the lego. One was a spinning top with cogs to make it spin. One was a merry-go-round that had a pulley to make the people go around. The last one was a jack-in-the-box that had a lever to make Jack pop up. We had lots of fun learning about how things move at the Lego centre.
Next we went to the museum. We had morning tea in the Dinosaur Garden and then explored the museum to find out more about collections and displays. We are planning our own display for our museum for our grandparents.
After lunch, we went to the State Library. First Mrs Batham read us a story and then we had a surprise visit from Maya's grandma who works at the State Library. She showed us some "artist's books". We had never seen one of these before but we decided we should make one of our own when we got back to school.
It was a very busy day. Our parents who helped us slept very well that night.

  1. Wow! What an incredibly busy day you had. It sounds very exciting! What exactly is an 'artist book'? Have you managed to make one yet?
