Cobb & Co Excursion

19/05/2016
​Prep - Year 3 class in front of the Cobb & Co Carriage
Jondaryan school students went to the Cobb and Co museum in Toowoomba on Wednesday 18th May. The students had a wonderful time learning, exploring and participating in hand on activities which supported their history and science curriculum.
The Prep, 1, 2 students participated in activities that centred on the past and how things have changed over time. They enjoyed a talk on olden day technology and got to explore the variety of carriages on display.
The year 3 to 6 students participated in the swap to city program; learning how Toowoomba was developed. 
 All students explored the science room investigating energy, and they also got up close and personal to the stuffed animals on display.
 
Libby Hoopert and Holly Baartz report on their day out:
What we liked best; we loved the part where we learnt how Toowoomba was made and how it was named. I also liked how we got to look at wild animals and learnt why some are endangered. We went to the science room and it had two push bikes that when you pedal on them the boxes lit up. They also had electricity domes, which when you touched them the blue electricity went wiggly and touched your hands.
