  • Very good, class. You guys are really catching on! But now, it's time to continue on to Australia's natural resources.
  • Although water resources are hard to find, Australia has energy and mineral resources in abundance.
  • Many of Australia's mineral resources are mined in the interior of the country. Many mining centers have been operating for many years, and will probably continue to operate for years to come.
  • Some of the minerals that are mined include zinc, lead, silver, and copper. Some mines possess valuable gem stones, such as sapphires. Energy resources in Australia include coal and natural gas.
  • Yeah, like koalas, kangaroos, and wallabies. Aren't cats and hoofed animals not native to Australia?
  • But why doesn't Australia farm like many other countries? Is it because they don't have a lot of water?
  • I think that's correct. Australia's land isn't very good for farming, so lots of places are used for grazing, and water is pumped up through wells and groundwater sources.
  • I think they're right! Australia's land may be good for mining, but it's pretty bad for farming.
  • Because Australia has been so isolated from the other countries and continents for so long, its wildlife is extremely unique.
  • Wow! Y'all are getting really good at this! Maybe you should be the ones teaching me! But before we move on, we need to talk about the native animals of Australia.
  • Aren't lots of Australian animals marsupials?
  • No, they aren't, but I think I like marsupials better, anyway. They're so cute, especially when they have their babies in their little pouches!
  • Great job, class! You guys really do know a lot! We have to move on to something else now, but I hope that you enjoyed our lesson about Australia.
