27/5 ASC Animal Freeze

This afternoon we explored story telling through using our bodies and dance. Initially we discussed the tradition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples telling stories through dance and different methods of story telling. We decided to focus our story on native Australian animals and decided how we could represent these animals using our bodies. We then added some music and used our bodies to tell our stories about native Australian animals. The children were excited that they could portray a clear message without using any words.

The children were able to develop their gross motor skills and communication skills as they explored the art of story telling. In doing so, the children were also able to gain an understanding of, and appreciation for, an important aspect of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples' culture.
