G'day Mate- wrapping up Australia

The children had a great time investigating Australasia and the country of Australia.
We learned Koala bears who live in Australia eat Eucalyptus trees.  We smelled Eucalyptus oil.
We matched Australian animals.
We mad a book of Australian animals.
We made Australian biscuits called Anzac Biscuits.  Here is the recipe:
1 c. rolled oats
3/4 c. desiccated coconut
1 c. plain flour
1 c. sugar
4 oz butter
2 T. golden syrup (we used brown rice syrup)
1/2 t. baking soda
1 T water (may need more if too dry)
Preheat to 300.
Mix oats, flour, sugar and coconut together.
Melt syrup and butter together.
Mix soda with water and add to melted butter and syrup.
Add to dry ingredients.
Place 1 T of mixture on greased tray (allow room for spreading). Bake
for 20 minutes. Loosen while warm, cool on trays.

We enjoyed them with tea and a friend.
We had a great time visiting Australia.
