Our Year Fives have been working on Convicts and it has been really hard to locate books that are suitable for them to access.
Tony and I went to Tasmania for the first week of our Spring break and spent a day at Port Arthur and they had a great little Book Shop. So I picked up these great books.
Port Arthur is an eerie place to be!
After the holidays I will share them with my grade, but then store them for the next time we do Convicts.
The A-Z is amazing and the kids will love the easy access to information.
The novel - Escape to Eaglehawk is written for kids
These two have almost a double page of facts on a convict - this would have been so helpful when we were doing our convict files. We relied on good ol' google, which was great, but these would have been so useful.
Year 5 History in Australia is heavily based on Convict history and if you need some support to deliver the topic - this product will help you out.
There are lots of photos to help guide you through the interactive file.
