G'Day Mate! Australia

This week we began to study Australia.  The children were able to choose to complete various dot paintings.  We had various animals and a sun available.  They enjoyed the technique of using a cotton swab to dab (dot) the paint on the paper. 

 We also had out an Australian pin map as well as coloring a map of Australia.  This complements out large continent puzzle map. 
Many children enjoyed making a "parts of a Kangaroo" book.  We learned that the kangaroo's front limbs are called arms like ours are!  It was also fun to learn that the baby in the pouch is called a "joey."
