Students in year seven at Wallan Secondary College were engaged in hands-on learning in Humanities. Students completed a very unusual activity encouraging them to learn about the continents as well as latitude and longitude.
Below, year seven student Ned Munro provides further details of the activity.
Last week we did a very exciting activity in humanities. This activity had never been done before and we were all looking forward to doing it.
When we all walked into the room we were a bit surprised to see the table layout was different. After writing down GANAG we got to work colouring different continents of the world, which we had learnt by Eat An Aspirin After A Nightime Snack! This stands for Europe, Antarctica, Asia, Africa, Australia, North America, South America. After we coloured in the continents we pinned them to a polystyrene ball and got a worksheet. We had to follow the instructions on the worksheet that Ms Gurney read out. We learnt all about the different lines on the globe such as the equator and the 45th parallel lines.
I really enjoyed this task as it was something different and it was great doing a hands on activity to help us learn and improve teamwork.
