'The Rainbow Serpent' painting activity for children

'The Rainbow Serpent' painting activity for children

I created this resource as part of ' International Week' at my school. The activity involves creating a story map of the Dreamtime story 'The Rainbow Serpent' then using traditional dot-painting techniques to dot-paint parts of the story. The children were really interested in the story and the technique of painting, and it made a great display!
