A History in Trees

We are learning to …

Students investigate these moments in history, and make a pitch whether their ‘Tree Story’ belongs on the class Capzle timeline. The class Capzle timeline will also include the future: for example, future uses for Sandalwood, future celebrations on the Mrs Dance site. This will entail design thinking and Design and Technologies Curriculum.
