Our All about Australia lesson plan introduces students to the continent of Australia, including its animals, geography, and more. Students solidify their understanding by playing a fun, interactive game with their peers. During this lesson, students are asked to circle the correct answers to each question related to Australia in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson material. Students are also asked to answer short answer questions about Australia to test their reading comprehension and what information they retained from the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to locate the continent of Australia on a map, list some of the countries and characteristics of Australia, and explain some of its history.
