Edwina’s Map

This term we have been learning how to create maps of Australia and other countries.

P – It was fun finding information, states, territories, capital cities and landmarks.

M – I think that it is sad that the term is coming to an end and we are not able to create more maps with Ms Fitzgerald.

I – What I found interesting was Perth founded on the 12th of June, 1829.

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.

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.

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.
