AWABAKAL walk in the Bush

Today was another outing with our homeschool group. Yesterday was our monthly social chit chat, kids get together day. It was a great few hours.
Today we went on a guided walk /talk around the area of land owned by the ancestors of our area, the Awabakal tribe. The guide showed the bush in a new light and how it would have been used by these people. The kids got to break into groups, make shelters out of the things on the ground, take water temperatures, see insects and animal life through netting in the ponds, observe different plant life and consolidate it all by a simple work sheet. They had fun. Just a few pictures that say it all.

I just wanted to share these photos of the day.
