Today we are going to learn the Maths words: flip, turn and slide to transform shapes. Watch this YouTube video demonstrating these transformations. The triangle will flip, turn and slide. Then you will make your own!
After that you will be working on your Symmetry Booklet to do these transformations!
We read this book earlier in the year, for Harmony Day. Looking back through this book helps us to remember that people from different places might look different, have different languages and religions, might eat and dress differently, but that all people all over the world are similar. So in Geography, we need to remember that ALL PEOPLE have their own connections to their special places, just like us.
You have just made a jigsaw map of Australia and its neighbouring countries. The people in these neighbouring countries are different from us, just like the people in this story. We will be finding out more about their lives soon when we research different countries.
Try to remember the names of the 9 neighbouring countries!!……? (a challenge!)
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. 😎
