Henry Kendall High School’s Year 11 biology students visited the Australia Museum in Sydney on Friday, August 21.
Some of the exhibitions fitted very well with the students’ current topic of the Australian Biota. They were able to view interesting and informative displays of animals that walked this land but which are now mostly extinct. These include a Diprotodon that is like a wombat the size of a hippopotamus and the ferocious marsupial lion. It was a great experience to bring to life many aspects of their studies. Unlike Ben Stiller from ‘Night at the Museum’, the Henry Kendall students managed to find a Brontosaurus who was willing to sit up while they took a photo.
