Term 3 Week 6 Learning Reflection

In the Year 3 neighbourhood this week we have been investigating how weather and climate have shaped the different environments in Australia, from the tropics in the north to the arid zone west of the Great Dividing Range. Investigating this natural system has resulted in discussions ranging from the formation of clouds to the characteristics of the troposphere. As a neighbourhood we will continue to explore these and other related factors. 

Ava: Weather is what the sky and the air are like outside, such as cold and cloudy.
