Australia Day Giveaway and Link-Up!!!


Australia Day - a National Public Holiday celebrated on January 26th that marks the anniversary of the landing of the First Fleet in 1788, with present day celebrations reflecting our diverse society and landscape.

The day is usually celebrated by having a good old fashioned BBQ with friends and family, and if you're close to the coast and the weather is fine you'll find the vast majority of the population at the beach! Head to this site if you would like more information on Australia Day.

In celebration of this great country I am privileged to call home, and to make you a part of these celebrations, I am hosting a giveaway where you could WIN one of 4 prizes - the first being the Australia Activity Bundle (which can be purchased through my TpT and DBT stores), as well as the Exploring Australia, Australian Gold Rush and the Australia Activity Matrix thematic units.

  1. Thanks so much for this post and for your giveaway Christie...we have a quiet Australia Day as I am a single mum with one child, but usually we do have some form of BBQ and maybe theme up with Australian flag cups, plates and serviettes :)

  3. My preschooler goes to an international school and his class celebrated Australia Day yesterday. Two Australian dads went to the class to talk about Australian animals, and taught the kids how to sing The Waltzing Matilda and Tie Me Kangaroo Down. At home, we read about the Indigeneous Australians and made an aboriginal handprint art.

  4. Thanks for calling us for the Australian day celebration because, friendship and good relationship are the only bonds which are all needed by the present world people to live a peaceful and happy life. As in present world, few countries has been under the control of terrorism, because of that, most of the students and youngsters from those countries are facing a tough situation in their life to survive. So, on behalf of our research writing service, i request you all to live a life which is having the love, peace, harmony, delight and joy as the vital elements of their life. So, I request all the teachers in the world to create awareness among their students about the need of living a peaceful life in the world and also what are all the disadvantages of terrorism should be known to them.
