G'Day Mate from Australia

Little Man, Little Red and I are having a great time in Australia. Ok, not really but we are having a great time learning more about the country. We are in the midst of another great Download N Go unit study. Do you know what lollies are or exactly what a wombat looks like?

Expedition Australia is a wonderful collection of geography, science and language. We have been labeling cities and other important locations on our map of Australia as well as learning a new word of the day and animal of the day.

The daily objectives are:

1. Where on Earth is Australia?
2. Some of the Special Places in Australia
3. A Bit of Australian History
4. Cool Things to Know About Australia
5. Fun and Games in Australia

We have achieved these daily goals through map work, reading some of the suggested books, drawing animals and land masses, and many other activities to numerous to mention. I think my favorite was that we had to compare time and temperature in our hometown to each daily Australian location. This tied in nicely with our math work on telling time. This unit follows suit with the other units we have completed. They have so many activities to do that our family has to pick and choose just so we can finish. I love that option and variety.

I highly recommend this unit to anyone that loves geography, Australia or just wants a change of pace in their normal school routine. If you want to read more opinions about this unit, go to the Blog Tour.
