Today we were historians in the city. We started our day at Birrarung Mar park where we learnt that before European settlement the land was were the Wurundjeri people lived. From here we walked along the Yarra River . We discussed why historically people settled on rivers or near water, we also talked about how around the river has changed and stayed the same over time. We then arrived at the Immigration Museum. At the museum we learnt that a powerful way to learn about history is through people’s stories.
