Filed under: sixth class — msobrien @ 11:20 am

Over the next few weeks we are going to be learning about the geography and history of Australia.

As a start, I want you to  compile some information about rainforests. For example information on the different parts of the rainforest, the animals that live there, the different countries that have rainforests.

Here are some websites to help you. Some have very basic information, others are a bit harder to read but have good information.
