Wildlife Park

Last week we went to the Wildlife Park here in our hometown of Ballarat. At school all our kids have been looking at using tally marks and graphing as well as animals and how they behave and live on our planet.

New skill for me - uploading a video to my blog. Wow - take video, upload to youtube, share (but share embed), copy html code, switch to blog and HTML on a post, post and then cross my fingers and everything else that when I publish you get to see two koalas moving, eating and hear our kids ohhing and aahhing in the background! So please be patient if it didn't work........
There are also some photos of koalas, kangaroos, a very shy echidna and a crocodile.








The really big croc died just recently.  There are also eagles, lizards, snakes, turtles, tortoises, frogs and Tasmanian Devils that I haven't got photos of here.


We also took our tally marks of animals that we saw. We took these back to school and then made our graphs from them. There were way more kanagroos then anything else. Some of our high achievers tried to have a code - 1 square = 5 animals. Pretty darn clever!

  1. How clever are you! The you tube worked perfectly. I was wondering how to do this the other day and you have inspired me to give it a go!
    Brilliant and thanks
