Deck the walls with quolls and wallabies

EVERY year I look forward to our habitat unit because we decorate the front hallway of the school.
EVERY year we study an unfamiliar habitat... in other words we don't study the rain forest.
We really explore our habitat ...
This year we chose Australia.
We studied the geography, people, art, and ANIMALS!!!!
The students are given ONE last project.
They are to pick an animal from Australia and create a life size representation. 
Their animal is then placed on our Australia Wall.
Here are a few examples of the FABULOUS animals that we got this year!!!



The 3rd grade teachers and some REALLY TRUSTED
3rd graders recreated the various habitats found in Australia!!!
Desert, Grasslands, and Tasmania
 here are the Grasslands
 Different angle same grassland :)

Here are some of my FAVORITE critters
 That is a bone the dingo is munching on!!!
This wall is right outside our school office and

  1. Beautiful! Just beautiful! Does the school keep it up all summer? Our district strips everything for the summer for cleaning...it just looks so sad! Thanks for the great post!
