Weekly Activities/ Day 15/ Activity 2/ Week 3

Activity 2
After exploring the gallery you decide to walk across the street to the national museum. It is an amazing place! There is so much information about the history of the country in this museum. It’s hard to know where to start!
After walking for a little while you come across a display with pictures of children that were taken in 1901 (over 100 years ago)! In this picture, the children are working on a local farm, milking cows. They are not going to school. Back in those days, children usually went to school until they reached the age of 12 or 13. They then left school and went to work. Imagine that you were alive 100 years ago. How would you feel if you had to leave school at the age of 12? Would you be happy or sad? On your blog, tell us how you would feel.
I would feel sad because I wouldn't like to work at a very young age and sometimes you don’t get the job you want when it’s time for you to leave school.


  1. Hi Von,
    I TOATLLy agree with you say sometimes people end up with jobs they never wanted. I also wouldn't like working at very young age because it would be so hard for me! Keep The Great Blogging going! ;)

  2. Hi Stanley,

    Thanks for your comment! I have to say I'm excited to go back to school next month. I can't wait to see my teacher, principal and friends!

  3. Hello Von
    I agree with you, whats the point of doing a job you don't like to do? Nice job.

  4. Hi Von,

    You are absolutely right. It would be very hard to leave school at the age of 12 and be stripped of the opportunity to continue to learn and to study towards becoming something that you want to become. If you had the choice right now, what job or profession would you like to pursue when you finish school, Von?

    Would you like to become an artist, a lawyer, an engineer, a teacher, a veterinarian, a police officer, a...

    There are so many options! Which one would you most like to choose?

    Rachel :)
