Who Were the Convicts?

This program poses questions about the Lanyon convicts and encourages students to find out who the convicts really were. How old were they? What crimes did they commit and how did they behave once they arrived at Lanyon? Students will explore a convict-built barn and decide whether they would have served their sentence or bolted for the hills. This add-on program will allow your students to spend the whole day at Lanyon.

Age: Years 3 - 6
