Great Wall of China Exhibition

This week I went on a school excursion to the Great Wall of China Exhibition at the Melbourne Museum. It was spectacular. I loved learning more about the wall, which as I've previously said, I'd love to walk one day. There were some spectacular exhibits and after teaching year 7's about Imperial China for the past 4 years it was exciting for me to see my first 'real' terracotta warrior and various other artefacts that we'd discussed in the classroom.
There were stunning photographs and the exhibition was well put together.
The bus trip was noisy and the students on the way there and back were incredibly loud. At the museum however, and importantly, they were well behaved and participated well in their learning experience. I was tired though!
