Our Country, Australia

This term, the Grade Four integrated studies topic is “Our country, Australia”. We will be focussing on Australian icons and symbols and everyone is looking forward to increasing their knowledge about our wonderful country.

To begin the topic, students had to draw Australia and label as many states, capital cities and towns as they could. They couldn’t look at any maps or displays, it was all done from memory. It was interesting to see what different students know about Australia.
