Hi everyone! I’ve got a new printable to share!
While we’ve travelled around Australia we’ve had the chance to see animals we haven’t come across before. Many I had never heard of! Animals like pademelons, brolgas, and jabirus. Not to mention all the animals we know and love like crocodiles(!), emus, and kangaroos. I created this fact sheet for the kids to record some information about the animals we’ve come across. Now that we are (almost!) done travelling we will continue to use it at home. These would be perfect for a unit study on Australia, or if your child is an animal-lover. So many animals in this country are found only here, so I wanted a sheet that had a map of only Australia on it.
The best part? It’s perfect for all ages! Younger kids can just draw illustrations in the boxes, or write just the numbers and short words while you fill in a few other details for them. Here’s my 6yo’s koala fact sheet:
This is my 8yo’s cassowary fact sheet:
My 11yo’s tasmanian devil fact sheet:
You can download the file here, you’ll be directed to box.com. You don’t need an account to download the file. I will soon be moving this blog to WordPress and once that’s done all these files will be downloaded directly from this site. Yay! You might notice I changed the conservation status section on the printable. I wanted it to be easier for young kids, so now they only have to circle one instead of writing it out like in the ones my kids did above. I’ve got more Australian-themed printables to share that we’ve been using during our travels. Stay tuned!
