Animal Habitats (The E in PBE)

Writing a report on an Australian animal you will need to research Physical, Behaviour and Environment facts about your animal.  This is your P, B, E chart.  Habitat falls into the E because it is all about where your animal lives or is found.

Today’s activity will give you a good idea of all the different types of HABITATS.  Click on AUSTRALIAN HABITATS and use the information there to write dot points listing all the different places which are in that kind of habitat.

Eg. COASTAL would have:

  • coastal waters
  • sand dunes
  • beaches … (there are more too)

Then you will be working in groups to investigate one particular type of habitat using the Yowie digital game we have already looked at.  You will be writing what you find into your Yowie Activity Book.

I wonder which habitat will be more popular with you all?

Class Celebration on Tuesday

I am so excited to see what everybody comes as tomorrow.  I wonder which Australian animal you have chosen to dress up as?

I’ve worked on Kai and Cassidy’s movie this evening and it’s looking fabulous!!!  You will really enjoy watching it.  🙂

I hope you have told your parents how to use the Photobooth and that you all get a chance to take photos with your parents in it tomorrow.  Remember to save your photo strip into camera roll so that we can print them out later.

See you all in the morning!

POP ART PROJECT

Our next art project is a piece of Pop Art using Australian animal line drawings.  Pop Art was meant to be fun and used bright colours.

ANDY WARHOL was a famous Pop Artist in the 1950s and 1960s in America.  Look at the colours he used for his prints of Marilyn Monroe.  These are the colours we will be using.

MARILYN MONROE prints and colours – play with the colours yourself here.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this piece of artwork.
