For the children’s map of Australia, I thought about what I liked when I was 6 years old and what interested me. I really liked leaning about animals so I decided to look up Australian animals and I found that each state had a few animal and plant symbols so that’s what I put into my map, along with other iconic places such as Uluru, Sydney Harbour Bridge, the National Museum in Canberra, the Great Barrier Reef and Mount Ossa in Tasmania.

Here are two versions of my map: one without a border and one with. I wasn’t happy with where I put the Australian flag and I didn’t want to have it on a flagpole, so I decided to make a fun border with the flag.
