I am looking forward to seeing what you have done in the last few days as you’ve explored the river at our bioblitz and learned more about Australia’s weather in capital cities. It’s a big country! 😎
Very exciting news!!! Both IGA and the Shire have contacted me about displaying your posters! I will be meeting with the Shire on Tuesday to see where we can put them and IGA will phone me again tomorrow too.
We have looked at climate and the climatic zones of Australia. Today we are going to learn more about the weather.
Watch this video clip and notice as many different kinds of weather that you can see. Write them down on your sheet and we will share your ideas at the end of the video.
WEATHER 101 (National Geographic)
Now that we have discussed the different kinds of weather events we saw, here is a BTN clip to show you how meteorologists (weather scientists) predict the weather. Listen carefully to hear what a METEOROLOGIST does!
how to find the average temperatures or weather for this time of year in your place.
Explore these weather sites and have fun working out what weather other people are experiencing just because they are in a different place, with a different climate. We will be comparing these later on. 😎
Great job, everybody! Ange really inspired you as artists to create your own dot paintings to represent “My Place” for each person. Now you know more about the connection indigenous people have with the land and their belonging to it – and how they show it bird’s eye view using a stick from the bush they have prepared themselves. What a lot of learning we did that day!
This video clip is a good introduction to climate and weather. You need to listen well to work out the difference between them. Today we are going to learn about the different CLIMATE ZONES OF THE WORLD. I wonder what climatic zone Margaret River is in…? See if you can work it out.
Now we are going to work in our booklets to check what we have learned and to see what kind of climate we have in Australia. 😎
You have been investigating landmarks in Australia and now we are going to focus on places in Western Australia! As you read about special kinds of places in your “Let’s Explore Australia” booklet, you will be finding out about:
World Heritage Sites
Reefs and Rivers
Rainforests and Wetlands
We will be investigating West Australian places and natural places closer to home in the South West of Western Australia (in Our Patch)! Use the planners and find out what you need to know – then you will be creating your own FACT SHEET using PicCollage! Have fun!
