This packet is a great accompaniment to any unit on the Land Down Under! It is written predominantly for second graders, though it would be acceptable for end-of-the-year first graders or beginning third graders as well. It consists of both math and language arts activities and includes word wall cards with a sentence-writing page to accompany them, five chart copy pages and pictures (see preview for explanation of how to use these), a mixed-practice color by number page (addition & subtraction), two Australian animal-related writing prompts, can/have/are charts for several Australian animals, four interactive notebook pages on Australia (covers flag, location on a world map, favorite foods, language, common animals, famous landmarks, and a Venn Diagram to compare & contrast Australia with the U.S.), Math Center to practice adding three numbers (clothespin clip cards & recording sheet), Language Arts center to practice Noun/Verb/Adjective (clothespin clip cards & recording sheet), and a “Poem in my Pocket” craftivity (see preview) in which students write a “kangaroo haiku.”
If you purchase and enjoy this unit, I would greatly appreciate feedback! Thanks so much!
