Australian Mini Unit
This five-day unit was designed as part of the graduate level Comparative Education course at Pacific Lutheran University. It was developed in the summer of 1998. The unit was designed for a hypothetical class of fourth graders, but it can certainly be altered for other grade levels. The unit is a quick, broad-based social studies survey of Australia; any one of the topics of culture, government, geography, and animal and plant life could easliy be stretched out over several days.
