Convicts and some great books

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.
