Year 3 Study Australia's States & Territories
Throughout Term 1, Year 3 students have been learning about the ‘Land Down Under’ by investigating Australia's States and Territories. They have used their research skills to discover facts about some of the fascinating natural and man-made landmarks around our wonderful nation, and have posed suggestions about how they can be responsible citizens and protect some of these unique creations. As part of this unit, students worked in groups to create a 3D diorama of their State, including the flag, flora and fauna emblems, and constructed a persuasive writing piece about why Australia is a great place to visit. As a result, many future holidays have been planned as our students have envisioned being able to personally visit some of their favourite geographic discoveries.
