In 2013 I traveled 22 000 km around Australia with my family in a 4WD and camper trailer. I couldn’t believe our own backyard actually had so much to offer and all these years I’d never seen or experienced it.
After traveling this great land and seeing all the fantastic learning opportunities within it, it seemed the logical next step to capture those learning experiences into a children’s activity book. As a teacher, I’m passionate about kids learning and nothing is more exciting than learning through experience. To see something in real life and understand its enormity is an experience that stays with you forever. Whether it’s the biggest monolith in the world, or a magnetic ant hill, learning on the road is not only exciting but gives kids a thirst to learn more about the world we live in. This thirst creates life-long learners.
With this as my inspiration, I hope this book adds a little something to your experience as you get your kids on the road.
