Yesterday 1J and 1F went on an excursion to the Chinese Museum. It was really great. We learnt so much.
Some of the fun things we leart and saw were:
– A Chinese Dragon- we learnt about the different animal parts that make up the dragon.
– Shadow Puupets- We learnt about shadow puppets, watch a show about the puppets and stating to make our own.
– Chinese ship- we sat on ship that was the same size as the ship that the Chinese people came to Australia on. It took them 2 months to get here. They came to Australia to find gold.
– Chinese clothes- we saw wedding dresses, hats, scarfs and lots of clothes the Chinese people wear.
