Teacher guide Welcome to Victoria

TLF ID M025079

In this learning sequence, students undertake research in order to create tour packs for families visiting Victoria. Students use public transport and tourism websites to develop itineraries outlining ways in which families can visit at least two places of interest using public transport. The packs include: information about the destinations; public transport routes and timetables; options for purchasing public transport tickets; simple financial plans; safety considerations; and maps and illustrations.
