More information about convicts

Choose an area of the FIRST FLEET or the life of CONVICTS that interests you. Find out more information about it and prepare to share with the class. It could be about a ship, a particular convict, the convict crimes, diet. You will need to present the information as a Poster with pictures you have drawn yourself. 

They must include:

Headings, borders, pictures (hand drawn), why you chose this topic, what you discovered, why it’s different to today, what you think it would be like, lots of facts. The writing must be large enough to read from a distance and clear and neat. You will present the information to the class.

You can work with a partner if you have the same interest or on your own.
