World War Living History Workshopdeveloper
On Monday, Year 9 students participated in a World War Living History workshop to bring to life aspects of their current unit of study, Australians at War (1914-1945).
In the first session, students learned about the experience of Trench Warfare in World War I. For the second session, students learned about the developments in gas masks and about the diet of soldiers.
Students had the opportunity to pass around artefacts, ask questions, and interact with each other during points of discussion. The students enjoyed the incursion and the opportunity to handle real artefacts while hearing stories and historical information about Australians’ experiences at War.
