Australia & New Zealand

G'Day/Kia ora to you!

Today I wanted to share with you all the fun we had on our unit study about Australia and New Zealand. Our main geography program is Expedition Earth by Confessions of a Homeschooler.

We stamped our passport with the country flags.


Our read alouds Great Barrier Reef and Stories from Around the World

After reading Stories from Around the World the boys worked on a kola bear craft.

We read about a little girl from Australia name Rosita from the book Children Just Like Me.

We learned about the Kangaroo and did a fun craft. You can find this craft template from here.

A model of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The idea for this project came from here.

To review all the fun facts, famous destinations the kids worked on a map of Australia.
You can get this resource from here.

New Zealand:

Since we covered so much of Australia we didn't do much in the way of crafts for New Zealand.

We added the animals of both countries to our Animals Around the World wall.

This completes our study of both countries I hope you enjoyed that :).
