Australia

G'Day Mates

In this unit, we will be learning about the Physical Geography of Australia.  Since it is our last Geo unit, we will work on the final review of Geo skills.  So many are ready to demonstrate mastery of these skills.  We will also work on finding Main Idea and Supporting Detail in expository text.  Finally, we will learn about the culture of the original inhabitants of Australia

 

Links, handouts, articles, etc. are all found at the bottom of the page.  For many of these you will have a choice of paper copy or download to your iPad.
