Deserts — Australia

November 7, 2010 at 4:42 pm Leave a comment

Next we learned about warm deserts and I paired it with studying Australia. Here is some of what we did.

Deserts — Here is the biome website I am using.

Australia — My kids each made a lapbook piece about Australia. (From the same lapbook as the Antarctica pieces)

The kids played with this online tutorial and game.

Map worksheet from homeschool creations. You follow the directions and label things on the map. I had my kids label the deserts on their maps as well. (My daughter made her own map instead of using the worksheet, but she followed the worksheet directions for labeling.)

My kids read the first chapter from this Australian folklore book.

All of my kids used this James Cook notebooking page. (You can color it and there are lines for writing about him.)

5 year old and 10 year old

My five year old colored and cut out this boomerang.

He also made his own Australian flag. I put THIS up on the computer for him to look at.

There is an Australian flag lapbook available on the Links blog as well as many books that you could read. Find them on the Geography/Cultures page under Australia. (The continents are in alphabetical order: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia…)
