G'day Mate! #resvt

G'day mate! That is how most Australians say hello to others! My students were very interested in learning about other cultures since our Comparing Cultures unit where we focused on Mexico and China. To finish out the unit we learned a little about Australia per my students' request. We learned and got to try out Aboriginal dot painting and painted our very own clap sticks. We also got to try some of the local food such as Vegemite and chocolate caramel koalas (the chocolate was more popular than Vegemite). Students also got to listen and explore didgeridoos, and boomerangs!  Take it easy (Australian slang for goodbye!)
