IMAX excursion

Category : Grade 5 & 6's

Mina’s trip to IMAX

On July 24th 2018 Natalie’s project group went to IMAX and the Melbourne Museum. We got there by tramming it. We hopped off the tram as we had to walk a little and found a park and had a snack.

After we walked to IMAX and stood on the escalator (and waited and waited) we jumped off, and the lady that works at IMAX came out of a little hole (it was scary) and she told us to sit down and wait. Then she took us to watch the movie. It was really loud! We learned about volcanoes, earthquakes and tornadoes. I learned that Istanbul had one of the biggest earthquakes ever.

After the movie we went outside to eat our lunch. I am scared of birds and where we sat there were a lot of birds. It was torture for me! Finally we went back inside and went into the museum.  The first thing that I saw was a dinosaur, it was made out of bones. Then we started walking around and there was a lot of crystals. I found the sapphire witch is my birthstone, it was blue. I asked Nat what is hers it was a amethyst.

After we saw the crystals we found this screen, it was a 3D theatre and we got 3D glasses and watched the film. We went under water without getting wet and we saw fish. It looked like it was swimming next to me.

At last we went back to school and played games for 30 mins. 

After all that it was a good trip and I enjoyed the excursion.

 

 

Term 3 Excursion – by Fatima

On Tuesday, the 24th/07/2018 17 students including me and 3 teachers left Moreland Primary School to go to IMAX and the Melbourne Museum. We walked to the tram to get us to the museum. I was excited to go there since I’ve never been there. My day began like this.

We arrived at IMAX and the Melbourne Museum. A lady helped us enter our first activity, which was in the theatre. We watched a short movie which was called ‘Forces of Nature’. The short movie was about natural disasters such as volcanoes, tornadoes and earthquakes. I enjoyed seeing how the volcano erupts, and I liked looking at the lava. I learnt how volcanoes, tornadoes and earthquakes form.

Next, we walked to the Dynamic Earth exhibit. We found another movie, and had to put on glasses which made it 3D. We watched volcanoes and underwater sea creatures. I really loved how I tried to touch the creatures that came towards me and the lava, but I touched the air. When we finished the 3D movie, we went outside to eat, and play in the park. And we went inside for our next activity.

The final activity was looking at the galleries. We saw different types of globes that show how the earth will change or has already changed. These globes showed earth from the past, present and future; from 4.4 billion years ago, and one hundred million years in the future. What I learnt was information about the earth and my favourite part was how the future earth looked.

After a long day, we all had fun and walked to the tram. When we were on the tram we were quiet, which made the teachers very proud. The tram took us to school and and after all, all of us had an enjoyable day. This excursion was the best excursion so far.
