True Culture Incursion

Today we were lucky enough to have Ian, Mitch and Ezekiel share lots about the Indigenous culture and guide us through ‘True Culture‘.

We took so much from this experience…

Michael – I learnt that breathing is the key to making different sounds when playing the didgeridoo.

Dean – I realised that the traditional Indigenous dance moves come from movements that animals make.

Kade – Learning about the didgeridoo extended my thinking because I didn’t know that they can be different shapes and make different sounds.

Julia – My thinking was extended when I learnt that termites make the hollow inside the branches used to make didgeridoos and that the branches chosen to make didgeridoos are chosen by knocking on them and listening for the sound that told them it was hollow.

  • What did you connect with? What did you learn?
  • What extended your thinking?
  • What challenged you?
