This page deals with Australia's agricultural and mineral resources.  It will also look at the global forces affecting industry and trade in Australia. The links below will help to find out about Australia's Industries that would not only include agricultural but also mineral and service industries like tourism and services.

The four activities below can be use as a review of the material found.  In order to use #1,3,4 you have to use link # 8.  This is a power point presentation on Australia's agriculture, natural resources and industries.  Activity two is general knowledge of Australia's economic geography.

There are two main projects for this unit.

The first is to see if any trade agreements could be made between Nebraska and Australia.  The student is going to Australia with the Governor of Nebraska on a trade mission.  The student will see what Nebraska has to offer to Australia and what they could use from Nebraska.  The student will need to have an idea of Nebraska exports and that of Australia.  The students will compose a report with a possible trade agreement between the two.

The second is to go on a "Fact Finding" mission for the Governor for 10 days to Australia.  The student will have to keep an expense voucher for each day and a total expense voucher for the trip.  The voucher can be found on Link #11,12.  This includes the total expense voucher and a daily voucher.  You will have to run off enough copies for the trip.  The student will have to go to five of the seven states of Australia and report the expense of that day. They will also include the activities for the day and things they like.  The total voucher will also have the highlights of the trip. Other links you need for the airlines and expense would be #10.  Students may use other travel sites if they want for local air fares and travel.
