Inquiry Term 2, Week 3

Yesterday was ANZAC Day – post comments on this post to share how you and your family commemorated this occasion (Dawn Service? Family gathering? March? Discussion?). Who was John Simpson Kirkpatrick and why was he considered a hero? Where is Sierra Leone and what information can your find out about this country? Why do we have a ‘Workers’ Memorial Day’? All this, and more in this week’s Inquiry :)

Please write your comments on the same coloured sticky as the prompt (e.g. yellow for Mauritius) – this makes it easier for people to follow your comments. Who was Wilbur Wright and how has he made life easier for us in 2016? Where in the world is Mauritius and what is a Good Samaritan?
