The Spear – An Aboriginal Adventure

Soon after the Poetry experience, I was required to teach a Unit on Stories from Other Cultures. Here’s a good story which I used to hook the children into this Unit:

Great story – has links to the interesting history of the Aboriginees, magical powers, an evil witch-doctor, a spear, a happy ending…what more could you ask for!

 

As far as our learning experience went, we created comic strips describing and retelling the story, after using Dramatic techniques to remember the story and discussion about the characters. Offered a good Art link at the end.
