- Use the link to the Google map (at the bottom of the page) to identify that part of the journey and try to imagine what route she had taken to get that far and where she went after that to get to Australia.
-Some Indian cities have changed their name since the time Amy was alive. Look carefully at the map and see if you can work out what Calcutta is called today. Do you know of any other Indian cities that have changed their name over the last 50 years?
- What kind of experiences do you think Amy might have had at the places she visited.
- It took Amy 19½ days to reach Australia in 1930. How long would that journey take today by plane? What procedures would you have to go through today that Amy probably didn't have to?
- See if you can find out about any other famous women on My Learning and what they achieved.
- Track other routes travelled by Amy across the world on an atlas/world map/Google Map. Note the possible stop off places and complete mini investigations into the characteristics and communities of these places.
