Australia is known for kangaroos, koalas, cricket, swimming, Aborigines, boomerangs and waltzing Matilda, according to the third grade GT students at VPS.
Australia also contains an amazing ecosystem with unique flora and fauna including pristine rainforest, ancient rock formations and beautiful beaches. The students have made maps showing all.
Teacher Karen Millsap and the students have been researching for months. This week, the students set up their projects in the Big Room and assumed the job as teachers explaining their Australian projects to their peers.
