Screech!!! The bus had pulled up on a freezing day in Melbourne. I took in a breath of the air and stared at the Immigration Museum. After a half an hour of snack we split into our groups as Group 1 stayed behind Group 2 walked to the Sandridge bridge.

I took my bag off and put it against the metal railing of the Sandridge Bridge and pulled out my iPad and met up with Jasmine to do our challenge given to us. First we took all our pictures and then we wrote down all our info. We were about half way through when we had to go to the Immigration Museum for our next activity.

After a short 2 minute walk we had arrived at the museum, we walked into a room with a member of staff in it. We all took a seat and there were strange suit cases on the tables, I had a closer look hmmm.. The staff member introduced herself by the name Zoe and explained to us about the suitcase challenge, she asked us to predict what decade our suitcases were from I studied ours and I scribbled down 2000s. We opened it, I picked up an ID card it said Yasser or something like that I already knew his name and his job( Photography.) By the end of the 15 mins we shared our answers around the room my group got it all correct!!! After that we ran up stairs and to into our groups for the passport session even though my group didn’t get much done we learnt a lot like you need heaps of stuff to migrate, the way ships changed over the years, what people brought to Australia and the migration history.

After lunch it was time to leave the museum and go back to school I think I learnt a million things but can’t remember most of them!! :X By the time we got back I filled out my passport a bit more and I recon today was great…
