Activities our troop did to learn about Australian Culture

When our troop 'did' Australia, we made a map. Actually a high school teacher friend had been there and brought back a place mat with the map on it, so I
had a copy made from it. The girls made some posters with information on different animals, and things of interest in Australia. Several people from the WAGGGS-L e-mail list sent me used stamps. One sent a pamphlet on their uniforms. We participated in the postcard exchange and got some postcards from Australia as well. My parents had been so I borrowed a few knickknack items they brought back as souvenirs -- boomerang, kangaroo statue, etc. We also used the song Waltzing Matilda.
