We’ve been learning about the continent Australia!
One of our parents brought along some wonderful items from Australia to share with us.
Holding a Koala
What’s on the Shelf?
Here’s our unit studies shelf with materials about Australia
Geography of Australia
This is our Australia Geography folder full of images from Australia and the Pacific islands. We got this from the Montessori Printshop.
These cards, also from Montessori Printshop (free), depict famous landmarks from around Australia.
I created these “Biomes of Australia” cards. They are inspired by the beautiful materials from Waseca.
The cards below use images from my old set of Waseca cards.
Animals of Australia
The Australian animal ID cards from the Montessori Printshop are great for a matching work with animal models.
All about Koalas! I adapted this set from Montessori Tidbits.
They love making booklets out of these!
Here’s our Aboriginal Art project. I printed out a series of dot paintings that featured a particular animal. The children can sort the paintings under the header cards. They can then get a piece of construction paper that has an animal printed on it and decorate with paint using Q-tips.
