1. To introduce culturally appropriate aboriginal concepts with children, we can create aboriginal music instrument known as clapping sticks. We can take two wooden paint sti
ers and can paint them with attractive colors using cotton buds and can let the children engage in painting the sticks with buds and fingers making attractive designs and pattern on them. The color choice can represent the aboriginal culture like
own color depicts the Australian soil, red symbolizes desert sand of Australia and white signifies the clouds, the three colors mostly used in aboriginal art(McLeaod,2015). We may draw special aboriginal symbols on the painted sticks and introduce their meaning to the children. The pattern and symbols can be chosen according to the age of children. Children would love to paint with buds and fingers. After painting both sides of the sticks we can put them in sun to let them dry. The wooden sticks can be hit together to produce musical sound. We may take the help of youtube videos for how to beat the sticks to produce a musical beat. The teacher or the parents must coordinate and guide the children in coloring, decorating and banging the sticks.
2. This activity is a great hands-on procedure to introduce children aged 3-4 with the most familiar colors of the aboriginal culture, different symbols and their significance in aboriginal indigenous tradition (Marker,2006). The activity also introduces the children with traditional music rhythm played in Australian Aboriginal ceremonies, with help of these sticks. They can identify it, enjoy it and understand its value in their cultural heritage. They can draw their favorite symbols on wooden sticks and can understand their relevance. Drawing and coloring different sticks and drying them in sun would present a great joy of creating something interesting.
3. The colors and symbols used in traditional indigenous aboriginal communities and their meaning leads to understanding their relevance in their traditional perspective. The music played by banging and clapping the sticks is the characteristic of traditional ceremonies in aboriginal culture. The activity suits to the age group of 3-5 years of age because the younger children of 0-2 years, in their sensorimotor stage of cognitive development, would not be able to understand the symbols and their meaning (McLeod, 2015). They would feel difficulty in understanding the meaning of clapping the sticks and how it is related to their culture. The age group 3-4 is preoperational stage and is most appropriate for symbolic thinking. They can express themselves through complete sentences and can understand others. Through learning outcome 5 of early learning framework, the children can use creative arts like painting, music and drawing to develop ideas and engage in learning(Marker,2006). It maintains their interest and cultivates curiosity to explore new things. Painting the sticks with buds and fingers improves their color recognition ability and making interesting patterns on the sticks like dots, lines and leaves. They feel nice when the clapping of sticks produce rhythmic sound.
1. The strategy of aboriginal symbols and images uses metaphors and the symbols to illustrate the content and the concepts. The knowledge about traditional cultural practices is coded in form of signs and symbols. Hence it can be used as a
illiant tool to memorize and learn the complex knowledge. According to the postulates of Yunkaporta (2011, p.208), learning the symbols, maps and image pedagogy are associated with each other. Maps and symbols provide the structure of memory while the images provide the language of memory. During their preoperational stage of cognitive development, the images help the children to learn about real things in a symbolic way. The symbols and images help in recognizing the things around them. The stories and incidents, when explained with help of diagrams, are more easily understood by the children of 3-4 years of age rather than the language comprehension. The stories based on cultural theme of aboriginal communities can be illustrated using symbols and graphs in sequential order to help the children understand the meaning of the concept and its relevance in their culture.
Children can incorporate the use of symbols and images in other aspects also,...
