We are learning to imagine what life was like in the early days of the Swan River Colony. We are also learning why the Colony was started, and the people who played a role in this.
Watch the movie about Stirling Source: http://aso.gov.au/titles/documentaries/bigger-texas/clip1/.
Read the quotes from Anne Lockyer from the copies provided by your teacher.

Can you imagine what Captain Stirling or Anne Lockyer might have said? Use the VoiceThread to record yourself thinking and speaking as one of these people.

Thanks for your feedback, Harrison. I’m glad you enjoyed the activities.

Its funny how we are trying to record a voice, whilst other people need help.
Harrison, I was so impressed with how our group worked together to overcome the tech-fail!
