Hi we have been making maps on Google in term 4. My map includes landmarks, states, territories, and capital cities.

P: I liked how we got to make digital adjustments to our map. I liked how we could add it on this blog.

M: I hated that we cant add 3D affects. 

I: I was interested in the facts I researched. I learnt that Sydney contains 20% of Australia.

In term 4 we have been having ICT lessons.In ICT we have been learning about how to make a map and we created our map on Australia.We  learnt about all the States and Territories and the capital cities we also learnt about the land marks. 


P:This term in ICT we got to learn lots about Australia and create a map about Australia some of the information.

M:The difficult things that I found this term in ICT were that we had to put all our knowledge on Australia on to a map and put it all into your own words.

I:Something that i thought was interesting is we got to use Google maps to make a map on Australia.

Samantha’s Australia map!!!

In 3/4LB  we have been learning about Australia,  we have used geographical features such as the landmarks, capital cities and states. We also found out how to change the pin on the map such as stars cycles and dimons  or we could just go to more icons witch gave us all sorts of fun and cool fonts. Did you know that Uluru is located in the northern territory, Ulurua  is famous landmark in the northern territory. 

P: I enjoyed researching  the pictures for my map. I found some really cool pictures of Uluru.

M: I didn’t really like the fact that we could’t copy and past. 

I: Did you know that Perth is known as the city of light.
