aboriginal storytelling experiences

This week our primary classes began some storytelling experiences using both natural materials as well as some toy animals. The students were asked to use the natural materials (collected from my backyard and local beaches) and create a setting for their stories. Most students chose a forest or beach setting while others chose a river or a combination of outdoor settings. The students were then asked to create a story that reflected something that they had learned about aboriginal culture and stories.

The students were highly engaged and animated. Some students worked on their own while others chose to work in small groups. It was exciting to see their learning come alive in stories!

It was a great story-full week in the library last week!
