Step back in time and explore the similarities and differences between families today and Aboriginal family heritage. Students will discuss their own families and compare this to the experiences and structures of Aboriginal families both past and present through food, shelter and everyday household objects.
- Students will participate in a matching game, comparing the features of objects used by Aboriginal families in the past and present with everyday household objects used today.
- Explore the Cadi Jam Ora Garden to discover plants that were used for food by Aboriginal People and compare the types of meals that families prepare to commemorate events.
- Students will also examine a Gunya and discuss how shelters used by Aboriginal families in the past differ from their houses today. As part of this discussion, students will also participate in a family tree activity – comparing the family structures and oral histories of Aboriginal families with their own.
