In Mr. Ryan's Class, room 11, we have been doing a project on Australia. We have been learning lots of funny and random facts. Here are some examples, there are more sheep in Australia than people and the money there is waterproof.
We did a lot of research on Aboriginal people, the original inhabitants of Australia. Captain James Cook was the first to discover the Aboriginal people. He said, “That in reality they are much happier than we Europeans.”
We drew maps and learned about the landscape, food, sport, famous people and wild life. Mr. Ryan told us a few of stories about Australian people. One such story was about the late Jim Stynes, who once played for Ballyboden, and then went on to become a famous Australian Rules player.
We learned a song about Australia; it was called Highway No. 1. It’s all about the cities in Australia.
We did some art based on Australia like Koala masks, the two Flags, Australian and Aboriginal and we did Aboriginal art too.
We really enjoyed learning all about Australia. Hopefully we can visit some day.
