(3) Koalas

Marsupials were the flavour of the week. Each student choose a marsupial and researched the relevant information which was recorded as part of their English writing abilities. (Science, English)

Local library, school library, the Internet and a documentary were used to gather information needed for the koala write-up. (Technology)

Detailed maps were investigated and parts were re-drawn to indicate where koalas live in Australia. (S&E, Mathsmapping)

Some students managed an outing to Perth Zoo on the weekend and took some photo's of the koalas which they incorporated in their Arts project, designing and making a poster relating to koalas. (Art)
