Australian Visitor

Australian Visitor1

Through use of a colorful multimedia presentation focused on the Australian culture, Edward J. Bosti Elementary School students in Lisa Canzano’s third-grade class recently traveled to the world down under with the help of Australia native Chris Pitkin.

During the presentation, the students learned various facts about Australia, including its location on a map, plant and wildlife population and the history of the original Australian settlers, the Aboriginals. To visually add to the discussions, Mr. Pitkin brought with him traditional boomerangs and didgeridoos, and offered students the opportunity to learn about the written language of the Aboriginals.
