How to Use This Course

Everyday Explorers: Australia and New Zealand is an elective course that allows the student to study interesting facts about Australia and New Zealand and the history of these nations. A different state or territory of Australia will be visited each month, with detours to explore New Zealand, the Cook Islands, and Niue. There are activities, interesting facts, and links that will help the student virtually explore the areas being discussed in the day’s lesson. A study of native Australian animals is included in the “Build a Zoo” feature. Activities to study the animals are included and targeted to the different age groups so any age student can benefit from this course. Answer keys are included where appropriate.

Course Introduction

This feature will lead your family in exploring one of the states or territories of Australia throughout the month. In addition, we’ll explore New Zealand, the Cook Islands, and Niue along the way! We’ll even build our own zoo!

Each week is broken into three parts.

Day One through Four: We will study various locations within our host region.

So, grab your map and your adventurer’s spirit and let’s go exploring!
