You'll uncover these exciting facts when you explore the A to Z of Australia - from Bondi to Kakadu and all the way to Taronga Zoo. Discover why Australia is one of the most amazing countries in the world! Create your own pictorial map of Australia, practice research skills, learn the basics of paragraph writing, build a working lighthouse, and discover some interesting history of unique Australian places. In the last part of the core, we are very excited to introduce the Simply Homeschool Interactive Map Project. Create an artwork showcasing the unique, quirky and interesting facts about your local area, then upload your own map pin for everyone to explore.
