Year 7 History Excursion

On 4 November 2015, Year 7 history classes went to the Nicholson Museum at Sydney University.  We had a great time learning about Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, and Ancient Greece and other ancient civilisations. There were a variety of new things that we all learnt such as : how the Roman Empire functioned, their harsh laws, and much more. Throughout the excursion there were many ‘wow’ moments. We looked at and got to touch things that we never thought we’d even get close to, like 4,000 year old Egyptian canopic jars! Overall it was an amazing experience and a great learning day. Everyone enjoyed the excursion, especially the Egyptian exhibits and went away understanding a whole lot more about these ancient civilisations.
