Our children are learning about Australia, so we displayed a huge outline of the continent Australia on the wall outside our classroom. Then the children cut out pictures of things they would pack in their suitcases to take with them on their trip!
This is a great (and fun) activity that students will use to investigate the crimes that caused some actual British convicts to be sent to the Australian prison colony. Pair this activity with the BBC article "18th Century Convicts Go Online". Students will love this activity.
