The Year 10 class that currently have Mr Allaway are investigating the population crash that occurred on Easter Island. They have recently been builidng in-depth knowledge and understanding about the geography and history of the island. They are now focusing their inquiry upon one theory linked to the population crash. The students have to design their own focused research question and then construct a 'shopping list' of research they predict they will need to answer their research question. They will then start their research to see of the information they need is accessible to them and make changes to their research plan as necessary.
