We started our sound topic in Science. We learnt that sound is made by vibrations. Vibrations are difficult to understand since we can’t see them so we carried out different investigations to help us to understand what vibrations are.
In order to investigate our statement “Australia is all the same!”, each group was allocated an Australian territory to find out about. We used different types of maps to find out the information we needed. We had to learn about keys, symbols, geographical terminology and independence! It was tough as we had to work hard to find the answers ourselves using a research method we had not come across before.
Today, we started our new topic....”Australia is all the same.....investigate!” We began by using a variety of maps to locate learning new geographical vocabulary along the way. We used atlases, Google Earth and globes in order to compare Australia to other identify the seas surrounding Australia and discuss some of the geographical features of Australia. We talked about the climate and location of cities and towns.
