Look around you – do you think you know every nook and cranny of the space you’re in? Or might you be able to see it from a new angle? The best travel writers bring a scene, a place or a person alive for us. In this activity, you’ll do that too – except you’ll be writing about a place you know very well – your own home.
This is a good activity for kids to complete independently.

Learning@Home from Cool Australia
Learning@Home resources are designed for parents and teachers to use with children in the home environment. They can be used as stand-alone activities or built into existing curriculum-aligned learning programs. Our Learning@Home series includes two types of resources. The first are fun and challenging real-world activities for all ages, the second are self-directed lessons for upper primary and secondary students. These lessons support independent learning in remote or school settings.
Cool Australia’s curriculum team continually reviews and refines our resources to be in line with changes to the Australian Curriculum.
