Australia Unit Study Ideas


Thank you for sharing!!

It’s been a while since I last shared one of our viewer favorite posts, a new continent unit study ideas. There are always so many great ideas around the web about each of the continent studies having them together in 1 place makes planning our units so much easier. Well and of course sifting through all the resources on the web can be quite time consuming, so I have taken all the hard work out of this task for you. I have already shared Arctic and Antarctic unit study and South America unit study, so today, here is our Australia unit study ideas.


Australia Unit Study Science Activities and Experiment Ideas

  • Each of the kids will choose an animal that can only be found in Australia, they will do research on the animal, do a project about the animal, and any other ideas I think that would be a good fit.
  • A Salt On Salinity ~ Due to the high salinity in the environment many of the plants suffer due to it. In this experiment kids will grow plants in different levels of salt water to see how the salt affects plant growth.
  • In this experiment kids will learn more about the waves and the ebb and flow of them.
  • Kids can grow coral in this science experiment while learning about coral in the Great Barrier Reef.

  1. I found your Antarctica, South America and Australian Study Units! SO perfect! I am homeschooling mother with 9 children and decided this year I would dive into one continent a month. These unit studies are exactly what I was going to try and create on my own. I am so grateful for the work you have put into these. Do you happen to have the other 4 continents? If so I would love to have a link to them.

    • Julia,
      Thank you so very much for your kind words. It makes me so happy to hear that they are useful to other parents as well!! These are the only 3 continents I have completed so far, I am working on getting the other 4 continents finished. Hopefully, they will be done in the next few months, as they are a favorite post for many.

  2. Thank you so much, this was so comprehensive and helpful. its a blessing to use something so well thought out, and not expensive. My homeschool thanks you!

    • Kaci,
      Thank you so much for your kind words. I am always so happy to hear when my posts are helpful to others, especially these posts that take a considerable amount of time to put together. It helps give me the encouragement to continue posting them, so I really thank you for taking the time to let me know! Have a blessed weekend!!
