Just like the United States of America, Australia is a country influenced by geography, culture, and history.
*What are some of the first things that come to your mind when you hear the word "Australia"?
Maybe it's the animals. There are kangaroos, koalas, dingos, wombats, and many many more.
Maybe it's the Australian Outback. This region takes up a majority of the country.
Or maybe it's even P Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney. Which we all know from our fun friend Dory. :)
*Now, take a look at these pictures, which are also from Australia. You may have no idea what any of these pictures are, but that's okay! Choose one and write a paragraph about it, doing your best to explain what it is or what is happening in the picture. (Again, it's okay if you don't actually know.....just do your best!)
