Australian Slang Wordsearch Sheet Australia Starter Activity Keywords KS3 GCSE Cover

Australian Slang Wordsearch Sheet Australia Starter Activity Keywords KS3 GCSE Cover

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘Australian Slang’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

'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!
