by year 3
Year 3 enjoyed their unit on Australia so much we decided to keep exploring.
We looked at books and online encyclopedias like World Book Online and websites like Wikipedia.
We followed the 6 steps in our research - defining, locating, selecting, organizing, presenting and assessing. We learned about indexes, keywords, topic sentences and conclusions.
We are now publishing a book for our classroom.

They are endangered due to loss of habitat and a disease called chlamydia
Echidnas are monotremes.
Monotremes are egg-laying mammals.
Tasmanian devils are mammals.
They have fur, are warm-blooded and give their babies milk to drink.
