Welcome 5/6P To Eduloc

5/6P Join The Eduloc Global Project

Welcome 5/6P to the wonderful world of eduloc

Eduloc is a location based learning program that combines google maps and imagery to create projects to teach others about places around the world.

Today, I would like you to think of a celebration that Australia celebrates? Where the celebration happens? and why this celebration is important to Australia?

4J has selected The AFL Grand Final and 4B has selected the Spring Racing Carnival. Take a look at their welcome messages: http://geofestes.iearn.cat

Mrs Joyce will be teaching in your room for 4 hours over the next few weeks related to this project. Today I would like you to think about a celebration, answer the above questions and convince me that your choice of celebration should be the one your grade should focus on for eduloc. All work goes directly in the blog, no paper, no pens. It is very important that you do not cut and paste information but place all your comment in your own words.

It is a privilege to be part of this project, with the eduloc project starting in Spain. We are part of a world wide trial for the first time. Only the schools in this project know about eduloc.

Mr Price would like you to teach him all about what you have been introduced to today. Listen and learn.

    Every year on the 11th day of the 11th month at 11.00am Australia stops for a minute of silence to remember the day when world war 1 stopped. We also stop to remember the men and women who risked their own lives so that we could live in Australia today. To respect the died we wear poppies because when world war 1 finished the poppies just started to grow in Flanders Fields. On remembrance there are memorial services held around Australia, but the biggest and probably the best memorial service is held in Canberra.

    Anzac Day is a parade. People celebrate Anzac Day because they are showing respect for the soldiers that died during the war. It is located on Kay street where the statue of a soldier that is saluting. People go there to respect them and stand there and listen to the words that people want to say and people go up the statue and put flowers around it. The people start marching down Kay street and normally go down franklin street.

    Remembrance Day

    On the 11th hour of the 11th month in the 11th year Australia celebrates ANZAC/Remembrance day in honour of those who fought for our freedom.

    Where is it celebrated? All over Australia in each towns or city’s. They celebrate it around their memorial statue.

    When is it celebrated? On the 11th hour of the 11th month every year but we have a massive gathering in the 11th year.

    Why is it celebrated? Australia celebrates Remembrance day in honour of those who fought for our freedom. It is important to celebrate it because our country went over to Gallipoli to fight in the war for rights and freedom. It shows we respect those who fought for us and it is also the right thing to do because you are showing them that you loved and respected them.

    Melbourne Moomba Festival

    The Moomba festival takes place in Melbourne and is its longest running and iconic event.

    The word Moomba is said to have come from an aboriginal word and means lets get together and have fun.

    The Moomba festival is held on the labour day long weekend.

    The Moomba Parade is normally held from 11am on the Victorian Labor Day public holiday. The parade takes place along Swanston St from Little Bourke St to Princes Bridge, ending in the St Kilda Rd Service Lane opposite the Arts Centre. After the parade events continue throughout the day along the Yarra and other parts of the city.

    The things there is a performance from professionals, festival parade groups, community organisations, Birdman Rally Competitors, catering operators, carnival operators, a firework show and many other activities.

    Attractions and activities throughout the yearly festival include movies under the stars, singing, dancing, special performances, buskers, clowns, stilt walkers, water skiing, wake boarding and various novelty races on the river.

    There is a host of activities for both young and old at a festive carnival time when Melbourne lets it’s hair down.

    I think the grade study should be on the rugby grand final because it’s really Australian because it is held in Sydney. ( anz stadium ) Rugby is something close to football, but you just don’t kick goals from the field. First you start of with the kick off, this is where the defence line goes up against the offence line. The defence line starts off by kicking the ball off a cup in to the offences line. The offence line then runs down the defence line with the ball. The aim of the game is to get the ball over the their try line which is around 50m behind them. However there are only 5 tackles, which means they only have 5 tackles to get across if they get up to their 5th tackle they have to kick it. The week before the grand final there aren’t really any parades or things like that. But they do have a lot of people attending the grand final. In anz they can hold up to 100 to 150 thousand people.
