Are you looking for more ways to expose your students to Australia? I love showing Discovery Education videos to my students. One problem I have is making sure they stay engaged and actually learn =)
I show the video once and encourage the students to just watch it the first time (some still try to fill it in anyway). I then give my students a few minutes to fill in as many as they can remember. Finally I show the video again for the students to fill in blanks they couldn't remember.
My 3rd graders enjoy doing this activity because it makes them feel like a “big kid” taking notes!
This DOES include a word bank, Dyslexic version and key. If you're looking for a more advanced version check out our version with out a word bank.
