Our Twitter Chat with Australia!

Australia book   In 2007 Mrs P, a teacher in Australia, sent a copy of this book to Mrs V and her class. This term we’ve been using it for our book study. It’s about an Australian family who go on a three month caravan tour of their home country.

 We’re really enjoying the book, but we had some questions about Australia and what it might be like to live there.

Mrs V suggested that we could ask Mrs P some of the questions on twitter

On Tuesday, Mrs V logged in to our twitter account and we began asking our questions.

We were all astonished when we realised that Mrs P was on twitter at the same time as we were, and she began to answer our questions as we asked them!

Later, we looked at all the conversations we’d had on twitter and we decided to make a classroom display so that we could share what we’d learned.

We’ve also turned our question and answer twitter conversation into a short movie so that we can share what happened here on our blog. We even added some Aboriginal didgeridoo music to entertain you while you read through the conversations we had.

Have a look below and please leave a comment to let us know what you think 🙂

  1. Just love getting to find out what kids have been up to. Great idea “tweeting” as a learning tool. J was very excited to tell me all about this.

    • Thank you! Primary 3 think it was very kind of you to leave a comment for us. We hope that you come back to visit our blog often so that you can see what else we’ve been up to!
