This term 3/4W has had their integrated unit as Terra Transformations. We all did a project, we could choose from a poster, booklet, power point presentation or video. It was very fun presenting our projects to the class. Some people’s presentations were amazing, incredible and educational. Here are some of our projects:

On Wednesday 18th November, 3/4 students were lucky to have Uncle Bill, an Indigenous elder, visit our school. He was called ‘uncle’ out of respect and he is an elder because he is one of the oldest in his skin group.
Some of our highlights included:
- Having the smoke ceremony. This is where Uncle Bill made a small fire and then put eucalyptus on top and 3/4s got to walk through smoke. This is done to welcome a new group and in Indigenous culture, they also snap spears and use water to welcome people.
- Finding out that Indigenous people used possum skin for balls (footballs)
- Finding out Indigenous people used fibres from trunk of trees to make nets to catch ducks.
- We learnt Indigenous people threw one boomerang which looked like an eagle so ducks would head downstream into reeds so other Indigenous people could then catch the ducks. There were two nets tied to each tree.
- We learnt that boys would hunt and girls would get the food.
- We learnt about different Indigenous skin groups. A skin group is how people notice what and who is in your family.
- There were also totems that represented different animal groups such as eagle, tiger snake and crow.
What else do you know about Indigenous people? Have you ever met an Indigenous elder and what did you learn about them?
