Our class novel Joey’s Big Day is set in Australia so we decided to do some further research and learn a little more about the land down under. We have been working in groups on projects about all things Australian. Topics include famous Australian people, the outback, Australian animals, famous landmarks and the Aboriginal people. Some of our class are even going to interview people they know who are living in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. Others brought in didgeridoos and boomerangs that came all the way from Australia.
