“Love ALL the resources you create Casey!!! They make things fun and interesting. Love how you always have a “hands on” element. Thank you.” – Kerry Ann
Lesson 1 – Introduction + Our Homes

Please note that some lessons may require some resource development on your part (for example, putting together a slideshow of images relevant to your state).
You will receive a PDF document of all your resources as well as an editable POWERPOINT file to create your own Place Posters. I have included posters featuring beautiful photographs for Brisbane city, Queensland, Australia and Earth at the end of the PDF resource, just in case you’re a Brisbane local like myself!
“Thank you. I will be using your posters as anchor charts for my geography unit. I especially love they are relevant to our local area! Well designed. Easy to read and a great visual for all learners.”- Jenny
Happy playful learning!
