Made by an Aussie teacher. Used in an Aussie class. Available for everyone. I worked hard to find a balance between making mapping as fun as possible and not including just the ‘usual’ info related to Australia, while still making it as educational as I could. These mapping activities are taken from my upcoming unit on Australia. Please follow my store, blog or Facebook to be updated on the release.
