This week in the book, Possum Magic, we get to know the characters Hush and Grandma Poss, two possums who lives in the Australian bush. They live there together with other Australian animals: wombats, kookaburras, dingoes, koalas, snakes and kangaroos. In this story we learn not only the names of Australian animals, but also the names of special foods that come from the different regions of Australia: Anzac Biscuts, Mornay, Minties, Vegemite, Pavlova, Lamington.
Let’s share some of our favorite foods from the state of Oregon, which is in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Click on the “+” at the bottom of our Padlet (online sticky notepad) to share your thinking.
Let’s also share the names of the animals we know live here in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest region of the United States (Washington State, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, northern California, and southwest Alaska).
