Below I have created a number of simple polls. All of them pose skinny questions.

Six Faces of Australia

One of the first writing tasks we undertook in class this year was to write on the topic ‘What being Australian means to me’.
The ‘Week 3 Class Blogging Challenge’ is somewhat similar to this.

It requires you to share something on your blog that would give an international visitor to your site an idea about ‘What being Australian means to me’.

So…your task is to produce a cube that depicts images that are typically Australian and have meaning for you… images that represent the place where you live, sports,holidays, favourite places or places you have travelled to with your family.

Choose wisely because you are asked to  justify your choices.
