- Time Different
- Tropic of Capricorn
- Food in Australia
- Aboriginal Dot Painting
- Aboriginal Symbols
- Places of Interest
- Aussie Slang
- Birds and Animals of Australia

There are some reading pages that will help children to complete the lapbook, though extra books or access to the Internet will help them learn more indepth and learn so much more.
Instructions as well as many photos to follow are included in the download.
Also included is a fun flip book. All pages in this are blank for children to complete as they wish. They could cut and paste extra pages of the writing for the lapbook and use them or they could write in the information themselves. Children could also use the extra photos that come with the lapbook to add to this flip book as well.

You could also include each of the state’s and territories as well as their individual state flags, animal and flowers. Food in Australia is so multi cultural it would be better talking about Bush Tucker which is more aligned with Aboriginal culture and is now becoming more popular in the mainstream. Useless fact Australia is the only country that eats the animals on it’s national crest.
Absolutely. This lapbook is more of an overview of Australia. I am updating my Australian Animals Lapbook, Australian States and Emblems Lapbook and Australian Aborigines Lapbook which would all go well with combined with this one.
