k is for koala
Our book list for this study -
Can you Cuddle like a Koala?
Cute, cute, cute toddler book.
I love the illustrations.
It is really a bedtime book, not really a "koala" story.
Look What Came From Australia
I like this book.
It is very informative, but the blurbs about each thing is fairly short.
It makes for a fairly easy read for the short attention spans of preschoolers.
It had made the kids want to go to Australia!
The Life Cycle of a Koala
This is very educational - a bit above preschool, though.
The weather was lovely this morning.
We went for a walk, looking for eucalyptus leaves. (Koala food)
We have a lot of eucalyptus trees in the area.
We may take another hunt soon, to look for a different type.
We listened to this man play his Didgeridoo.
We learned The Kookaburra Song - Kookaburra sits on an old Gum tree...
And we listened to the Kookaburra Laugh.
The Amazing Lyre Bird - They are from Australia. And really - they are amazing.
Watch the video & see for yourself. God created some crazy creatures.
We had Australian Meat Pies for dinner last night. Pretty good.
A little on the bland side. But, that probably makes them more authentic?
We had mashed potatoes & peas, too.
Scott said when he was in Australia, the only veggies they ate were mashed.
Here's a letter "K" tracing sheet for your kiddos.
I was gonna make cardboard boomerangs with the kids. Haven't done it yet...
