British Science Week – Class 2 – Journey Sticks

This week is British Science Week with the theme this year being journeys.

This morning we started our Science week activities by building journey sticks.

When Australian Aboriginals went on long journeys they tied objects to a stick. They would start at one end of the stick and work along it as they traveled. The objects would help them to remember events and experiences on their journey, and to tell others of their adventures.

Our journey was around school. We collected objects and tied on red wool whenever we passed a classroom. –
