Inquiry: Longneck’s Billabong

We have had so much fun this week having Max the turtle in our classroom and all the learning we have done around him. Today we learnt about where turtles like to live! We read the story Longneck’s Billabong and spoke about what animals live in the Billabong and then designed our very own Billabong.

What is a Billabong?

“It is where yabbies’ live”- Milania

“Animals live there”- Jackson

“Fish. Big and little”Reuben

We then ventured to the Fish Farm and designed a Billabong for Max the turtle. We were very lucky to help Mr McCarthy with this design. We also got to feed the fish in the Fish Farm.
