IndigiSTEM Caring for Country... outdoor activities for children; learning about Indigenous Australia
The IndigiSTEM Caring for Country is a beautiful resource for your kindergarten or preschool, providing details for ten easy to follow outdoor play activities which bring in elements of the Aboriginal 'Caring for Country' concept. It is all about getting the children outside, incorporating elements of nature and sharing with them aspects about Indigenous culture. An example of one of the activities is building a native foods garden with your children… teaching them about Australian plants and animals, and introducing them to the concept of Aboriginal plant use throughout time. Another example is building a worm farm, and using it as a platform for talking to children about other creepy crawlies, like the Australian witchetty grub!
Priced at only $34.95, this is a very affordable way of bringing Indigenous culture and STEM into your early learning space. Like our other IndigiSTEM resources, it is aimed at 3-6 year olds.
