Students impress with their understanding of history
VISITORS to the Harvey Library can explore ancient Egypt with the help of Harvey Primary School students this week.
The Year 5 students are displaying 14 of the 28 dioramas they made while learning about ancient Egypt last term.
It was part of their focus on ancient civilisations at the school this year.
Teacher Shae Jovanovic said the students made a diorama, wrote a paper and performed an oral presentation on what they learned.
“It was a good marking tool for us because it showed us the depth of their understanding,” she said.
Students created dioramas showing pyramids, tombs, papyrus and writings, pharaohs, religious beliefs and the Nile River.
Ms Jovanovic was impressed with the students’ work which showed they could learn independently.
“This project blew me out of the water,” she said.
“They’re just such responsible learners.”
Ms Jovanovic said the dioramas went on display last week to the community and would be open to view for the next week.
Year 5 student Lily Anzellino shows what happened upon the death of a pharaoh in her work.
Max Bonner depicts the path of the Nile River with his diorama.
Year 5 student Gianna Bacich displays her pyramid diorama.
Sofia Strauch shows the process of mummification with her display.
