We read lots of books. The ones the kids chose as the best were The Singing Snake, The Biggest Frog in Australia, Edward the Emu, Diary of a Wombat, Destination Australia, Look What Came From Australia, and Swim, Little Wombat, Swim. The kids loved learning all about the fascinating animals in Australia. The girls both said the kangaroo was their favorite and Colin liked the koala best. They used Draw Write Now to draw a kangaroo, koala, echidna, and a platypus.
I had hoped to get in some crafts, but the week was just too busy and it didn't happen. We did make lamingtons though.
We also made some koala cookies. They looked good before baking, but then they spread too much and turned into this.
|Caleigh's looked pretty good.|
|Molly had already taken a bite before I got the pic.|
|Colin had taken a few bites. He thought it would break if he tried to hold it up.|
