Australia Unit

Huge Montessori -Inspired Australia Unit!

In five days time it will be Australia Day, 26th January. It is a wonderful time to celebrate everything that is unique about this wide brown land. I have put together a huge resource of some of the best resources and activities from the web to make your planning quick and easy. From exploring the Australian continent to discovering our unique flora and fauna.

Australia has a diverse, multicultural population but it is our indigenous people that I have focused on in this Australia unit. You will find lots of activities around general cultural aspects of our Aboriginal people.
