Meeting 'Marjorie'

Students will step back in time as they meet 'Marjorie Bligh' and learn about her philosophy of reusing. They will explore how we used to live and how the concept of 'mend and make do' helps us to be more sustainable.

Students will:

  • explore items from the past and consider what we use today
  • dress up in costumes and explore how different materials can be used for different purposes
  • create their own craft item to take home
