Geography - Australia

Because Evie has been asking to do 'school work' lately I decided that learning about Australia would be a good place to start with geography.
We began with a world map and coloured Australia, then labeled an Australian map with the state names, and coloured an Australian flag. We also talked about why the Australian flag looks the way it does, the union jack comes from England the Southern Cross and the seven pointed star.

We also marked our town on a South Australian map and then added the town where my Evie's and Georgia's Aunt (my sister) lives.

We have since added the animal (wombat) and flower (black eyed pea) symbols for South Australia and the Coat of Arms.
