    I am so JEALOUS of your topic. You can find out information/facts by using the internet, exploring books or asking people. I have drawn Holland or Netherlands as my team. Here are some facts:-
    Did you know that Amsterdam (Capital of Holland) has more museums per square metres that any other European capital.
    Holland has a coalition governement like us in Britian.
    Holland has a thousand old fashioned working windmills.
    Did you know that one quauter of Holland is below sea level.

    Hope that helps the person or team that has Holland. You can always ask me for a fact.

    We are having lots of fun doing the world cop topic.I have been doing my get talking get learning.I have found more information about the Aborigenes.I will type it out.

    The Aborigines
    Aborgine Art
    The Aborigines used to make symbols out of dots. It reminds me of pointillism. They used to make these to tell different things like animals and plants. Sometimes it is hard for us to say what the symbols mean but the Aborigine people had no problem reading them. Now I will show you some examples.

    Aborigine foods
    The Aborigine people didn’t used to buy food as we do now. They hunted there food. The woman and men hunted for food. The women used to hunt vegetables and fruit while the men tried to hunt animals.
    The women used to hunt there vegetables from the bushes. I think they called it bush tucker.

    The men used to use a boomerang to kill the animals. They used to eat caterpillars, lizards, Snakes, Kangaroos and many more animals. They used to eat insects as well. They also used to eat grubs. I think there is a symbol of that on the first page.

    How Aborigine people get sick
    The Aboriginal people believe that a witch doctor makes them sick by putting a spirit into you. The Aborigines used to make there own medicine which was very strong. I think they made it out of plants and seeds. You had to put a lot of work into making the medicine.

    Aborigine animals
    The Aborigines believe that when one of them dies, they come back in a spirit of an animal. It is like Hindus believe that when some one dies they will be reborn. There were some Aborigine stories about how types of animals got there body parts. My favourite Aboriginal story was the Kangaroo and the Porpoise. Well it said in that story that the kangaroo has tiny hands because the porpoise hit them with a stick and she had broken the kangaroos two arms. I think it said that kangaroo put a pin in Porpoises head and that’s why porpoises squirt water out of there head.

    Thats what I have found out on the Aborigenes.I have being making a chunking song for Numarecy.I will share it on Monday.

    The Australian native peoples are divided into more than 500 tribal groups. These tribes are also of two major types – those who live inland, and those who live along the coastline. The separation of tribes and the division provided by the environment led to differences in views about the nature of human life and death, and the part dreams played. But some beliefs, such as reincarnation.

    There a lot’s of animals that live Germany; you find lots of animals somewhere called the Black Forest.

    Here are some animals you might find there:
    Grey Wolfs, Red Squirrels, Deer’s, eagles and bears.

    I found out that Germans play the clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpets and the Trombone. They play about 100 orchestra a year. Some of there instruments are similar to ours. Germans like opera and classical music.

    Protea Hotel Cape Castle is one of the most magnificent hotels in South Africa. There is a balcony where you can see from the great distances. It is also good for sight seeing. You will get brilliant room service. It has luxiourise bedrooms and succulent food you will be spellbound to stay. Here is the address you will need to come to…
    3 Main Road
    Green Point
    Cape Town 8001
    Western Cape
    South Africa

    Sight seeing
    There are lots of sights seeing right near the hotel. Sabi river sun resort is one of the most fantastic Sights. It is really relaxing but not only that but you might get to stay there for a bit. You get a tour about all the animals.
