The City can be a fun and educational experience for students, especially those that don’t visit too often. It’s always a great idea to prepare your students before their visit to the City or you can even get your students to assist with the planning of the excursion.
Here’s a few of our favourite ideas:
Create a mini Melbourne city
Before your trip to Eureka Skydeck, get your students to put together a mini city. Here in Melbourne we have so many iconic landmarks (such as the MCG, Art Centre, the Shrine of Remembrance or even us at Eureka Skydeck/ Eureka Tower.) In groups, students can be allocated a different Melbourne landmark to make and present to the rest of the class. This is also a great way to apply collaborative learning in the classroom.
Walking Tour Map
Another great idea is to create a walking tour map of Melbourne with your students. Get your students to find pictures of the landmarks and show the route they will be taking throughout the day. This is a great activity for primary school aged students.
Studying the history of Melbourne? Why not get your students to create a timeline wall in the classroom. In small groups students can create a timeline outlining historical Melbourne moments. Then your students can get a view of modern Melbourne from above at Eureka Skydeck.
Teachers are welcome to meet with Nilsen at Eureka Skydeck free of charge ahead of their excursion to tailor an education program to suit their students’ needs.
