HABITAT x 2 : location in Australia. A map of Australia is included to mark the location.

DIET : food the Australian animal eats to survive. There is place for illustration.

BEHAVIOUR: the physical and behavioural adaptations that enable the Australian animal to survive in its environment.

INTERESTING FACTS: any other amazing facts that would sum up the Information Report.

How to assemble:
You can choose either of the three options.

→ Print out the templates in blackline. Cut around each template and assemble from smallest template to largest template. Have students colour in cover page. Staple at top tab for flipbook or glue descending order in notebook.

→ Print out the templates on cardstock (different colours). Cut around each template and assemble. Attach at top.

Suggested use:
Have students collect information in their flipbook on the Australian animal under study. This could also serve as their draft where they could use the self-editing and peer-editing checklists to edit. Finally have students publish on given writing sheets or type out content from draft observing corrections. The sections pertaining to habitat, diet, life-cycle, and behaviour can make-up the Body of the Report and 1-2 interesting facts to conclude the Information Report.

Please note that although the kiwi is claimed to be a bird endemic to New Zealand, some Australians still proudly point to the kiwi as "their bird" as there have been studies that indicate that the kiwi left Australia for New Zealand at some point, possibly on land links via New Caledonia when New Zealand broke away from the ancient Australia/Antarctica supercontinent.

I've included the kiwi as an interesting subject to be studied as they are also related to emus and cassowaries of Australia, and the extinct moa of New Zealand. If you would not like your students to undertake the study of the kiwi, please omit this section - it's only a page.

These Australian animal flipbooks are sure to make an interesting bulletin board display.Wish you and your students a successful academic year.
