This scheme of work explores the culture of Australian Aboriginals, drawing inspiration from their art, music, history and culture. The story of the creation is introduced, as seen through the Aborigine eyes, with students miming and developing the characters of the animals at a watering hole using a class soundscape, tableau and symbolism. The origins of Australia serve as the backdrop for a discussion about how cultures may clash, with students devising a movement piece to illustrate this. Groups then use examples of art to devise their own pieces for assessment, performed to music.
