Muffin Tin Monday-Australia

Mac, Princess and I spent several weeks learning about Australia.  We spent most of the time learning about the animals, but also a bit about the Aborigines, geography and history.  Here's our tin!

The goldfish are for the great barrier reef, the pita pockets are for kangaroos, The fruit by the foot was for measuring how far kangaroos can jump (25-30 feet).  The egg was for monotremes, or egg laying mammals, which are only found in Australia.  The bread is our version an echidna, and the jelly beans are how big a baby kangaroo is when it's born!


And the bowl is Australia!  Blue yogurt ocean, graham cracker sand, and Uluru, or Ayer's rock is an M&M.  Eating a continent is great fun!

LOVE these! So fun. We haven't made it past the oceans and continents yet, but we're working on it.

Monotremes!!!

Faith did a project on the platypus for a homeschool zoo class she was taking. They are really cute.

Great lunch!
