We invite you to a very special PL event for K-3 Educators to Celebrate 50 Years of Play School. In this session we will explore some key links to the P-3 HASS Curriculum, such as the concept of Significance, Continuity and Change and Time, through object-based Inquiry and hands-on activities, concluding with a tour of the current, travelling exhibition from the National Museum of Australia, ‘Celebrating 50 Years of Play School’.
