The Year 3s went to the Adelaide Central Market and Migration Museum in February to kick start our unit of inquiry on Cultural Diversity. The excursion was a great success! The highlight for many students was seeing and tasting some interesting foods such as ‘green ants’. The children enjoyed an informative walking tour of the markets, learning about the diverse cultures in Australia and the wide variety of foods that are present in our community because of this diversity. We were fortunate to have the shop owners answer many of the questions that the students had
We continued our learning at the Migration Museum where visual aids helped the students understand how people migrated to Australia and why they chose to migrate.
