Discovering our Indigenous Australian Culture
At Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach, we have identified that learning about aboriginal culture plays an important part in early education. We encourage and recognise cultural diversity with the children. This can be done in many ways.
Last week the children explored their indigenous local culture, the Gubbi Gubbi aboriginals in the form of indigenous art.
The children mixed their coloured paint with sand, mud and dirt to emulate the ochre colours and textures of aboriginal art. They used sticks to make the dots and patterns characteristic of aboriginal art.
Activities like this can keep the children engrossed for hours.
