Summer Learning Journey - Week 1 Day 2

Task - Activity 1

Now that you have chosen your country, it is time to decide where, within your country, you would like to visit. Many tourists will choose to visit the capital city of a country. It is often quite large and full of interesting things to see and do.

Before you go overseas it will be important that you learn a bit about the capital city of your country. Hop online and find out about the capital city of your country. Use this information to complete the five sentences below:

  1. The name of the capital city is Canberra.
  2. The population of the capital city is 356,585.
  3. In January, the weather in the capital city is usually hot.
  4. The capital city is located in the southern (northern, southern, middle) part of the country.
  5. The languages most commonly spoken in the capital city are English.


  1. Hi Francesca,

    I would love to visit Canberra, but I wonder how hot it would get in the summer and how much warmer it is than Auckland. What attractions do you think you might find in this city?

  2. Hi Francesca,

    I also wonder what places there are to visit in Canberra. I might like to check out Questacon! A kids science and technology museum. It looks pretty fun! It would probably be a good place for a field trip or to take a young family.

    Keep up the great work!
