As a result, there are many animal species that occur here and nowhere else in the world, such as the platypus, kangaroo, echidna, and koala. Australia has 516 national parks to protect its unique plants and animals. One of Australia's most amazing sites rises like an enormous whale's back from a flat red-soil desert called the Red Center. This site is called Uluru, and it is a sacred natural formation at the heart of the country. Rising 1,100 feet (335 meters) tall, it is the largest rock in the world!

Lesson plans, resources, and ideas for countries in Australia and Oceana.

We took two weeks to study the continent of Australia. Our first week we focused more on the geography of Australia {Great Barrier Reef, desert, oceans surrounding Australia} as well as the currency, the Australian flag, and learned some Australian slang words {grins}. During our second week we learned about kangaroos and koalas and completed some minit books {usually to make a lapbook} about both animals. We also had fun trying to draw some different animals and even tried to draw our own map of Australia.
