We recently participated in a swap from Worldwide Culture Swap. One of the packages we received came from Australia, and so of course we had to do that as our next geography lesson. Here is the wonderful package we received:
The kids have been having so much fun exploring all the goodies and reading all the information that was sent. We also checked out a number of books from the library. Are We There Yet?
by Alison Lester and Diary of a Wombat
by Jackie French have been our favorites by far.
Miss M colored her own Australian flag, and did a Koala bear craft. We printed the template out from here and she used polyfil stuffing for the ears and belly.
Miss M still has a list of Australian animals she wants to explore, so we might be hanging out down under for a while!
