In term 4 we have been learning to create maps of Australia and the neighbouring countries that surround it.
In ICT classes we had to add in the capital cities, states, territories and landmarks.
P – I loved learning how to make the maps because now I can make them at home with no help.
M – I think that it is sad that the term is nearly over and we won’t be able to make more maps with Ms Fitzgerald.
I – It was interesting learning how to post our maps onto our class blog.
In term 4 we have been learning about states and capital city of Australia and naming them. we have also named the landmarks and write captions.
we also have been learning about this in I.C.T. we have learning about whats surrounding us as well.
P: the best thing was finding my home.
M: I didn’t like naming the states and capital cities.
I: The interesting facts were that the MCG is popular. something else is that you can find your house on the computer.
Our inquiry topic this term was about Australia and we took ICT lessons. We made our very own maps of Australia and all its featrues .We found info and put pins on the states, capitals and landmarks. we had a fun time and worked very hard on this project.

We have been negotiating a personal learning experience. We have worked in small groups and researched a country of our choice. We had to find out about the geography of the country, something about their culture and an interesting landmark.
We communicated our learning by creating a movie.
We are communicating our new knowledge about India by collaborating in small groups to create movies. Please watch our creative movies and let us know what you think and what you know about India.
Today we have learnt about one of Australia’s neighboring countries called the Republic of India. It has a population of 1.2 billion people, that is so much bigger than Australia’s population! The capital city is New Dehli and an important landmark is the Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal was built by an Emperor for his wife’s tomb. She died giving birth to their 14th child! The north of India is lined by the Himalayan Mountains. The Ganges River flows form the Himalayan Mountains to Bangladesh. This river is important to Hindu people because they scatter the ashes of their dead relatives there.
