Our Australia Unit

We are enjoying learning about Australia.

This unit is 53 pages long and it comes with an informational
text and comprehension questions.

If you purchase the entire unit you will be getting a lap book as well.
However, I like providing lap books separate so you can
pair with any other book on Australia.

You will have your kids learning about the country including 
the animals, the national symbols, the weather, time and aborigines.

Some Extra Activities we did

While learning about the Aborigines we did some body painting.
We also made a passport because we intend to use it for every
country that we learn about.
You may download that for free down below.

Put together the Australian Continent.

Crafty Ideas



I Share my board 

We read the book Wombat Stew and added this extra activity to our day

This is our lesson after reading the Book 
The Wombat Stew by Marcia K. Vaughn 
This is a great book
 to add if your kids are in early elementary level.

Here are some activities we did extra for this book

I made a questions sheet and had Daniel find the answers in the wombat stew. A fun way of relating to the reading.

Making a Wombat Stew like in the story....YUMMMMMMMYYYY!!!!!!!
