Day 8 Culture (Imagination)
Updated: Aug 14, 2019
The focus of today’s lesson was culture. The students enjoyed listening to various animal sounds from the didgeridoo today. Their first activity was to close their eyes and feel the vibrations and sounds the didgeridoo makes. Troy then encouraged the students to see if they could guess the different animal sounds he was making. The students listened to a story through music as Troy explained that when a didgeridoo is played it is usually to tell a story.
The second half of this lesson, allowed the students to begin the painting process on the wall outside the main entrance of our school (The priming process). The students enjoyed getting their hands dirty (Literally, I made sure all hands were washed after the lesson J) and were overjoyed to be putting some paint on the outside wall. Over the next few weeks when you pass through our main building you will begin to see the transformation of the brick wall. Let us know what you think.
Below are some of the animal noises that the students visualised whilst listening to the didgeridoo.
Kohen S – Snake, lion, tiger, cheetah, sea lion.
Mia S – Barking dog in the forest
Mia A – The sound reminded her of small shrubs/bush on the banks of a river.
Taj A – A person standing on a cliff, falling down into the river but surviving.
Marcus B – A dog spots an older man carving a didgeridoo with a rock in the bush.
Destinee – A girl is sitting on a log, listening to another person play the didgeridoo.
Mia T – A kangaroo hiding in the bush.
Calae – A fox hunting, sniffing in circles in the middle of two trees.
Harper – A galloping horse that is rearing.
