I am very proud and honored to announce the grand prize winner of the OutBACK TO SCHOOL contest::: Elise Jenkins!
Elise, a 5th grader, chose a VERY interesting animal. The aspects she highlights are thoughtful and thorough. My favorite part is the story about the ‘etymology,’ which means the study of the origin of words. Excellent job, Elise! Keep researching and learning! Check out her submission below and be sure to congratulate her in the comments!
Elise the echidna will be a character in the next book, Wallaby Walkabout!
