Last week, my friend did an excellent job hosting our monthly Culture Club. We traveled down under to learn about her grandmother’s native land, Australia.
We drew mini-replicas of the Australian flag and their aboriginal flag.
We studied Australian geography with the aid of a giant map drawn in chalk on the driveway. We learned about Australian animals with the book Over in Australia. We viewed some Australian artifacts, books, and pictures.
And of course, we ate a delicious Australian feast!
Back at home, we read more about Australia with the book, Australia ABC’s (as well as Over in Australia again). I’m glad I had library books this time; it was a great way to go over what we learned in Culture Club that morning. We also did a craft replicating aboriginal eucalyptus bark art, but I’m pretty sure this craft was not realistic in the least. We love doing crafts anyway and the girls had fun.
