Book Activities for Heroes, Rebels and Innovators: Inspiring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from history by Karen Wyld, Jaelyn Biumaiwa
This CBCA 2022 Notable Eve Pownall book recounts the heroic actions of seven sets of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Each amazing story contains both a recount of the events and a tale of the people who made them possible. This book is perfect for students in upper primary and lower high school to understand some of the important rebels and innovators in Australia’s recent history.
The team at Learn From Play have made 5 activities for this book which are a map of where these tales each took place to see how wide spread the acts of heroism were, a crossword to test that students have listened to the stories, a self reflection on the information presented in the book, a look at the Dhurag language of the Eora Nation of Sydney’s lower north shore and memory cards of aboriginal words and their meanings.
The games below are advertisement free and will open in a new window. They can be played by children online as many times as they like. The Match Up Memory Card Game will allow children to improve their memory while the Maze Game lets them develop strategy and problem solving skills while having fun. These games will also build children's attention, concentration and focus, visual recognition and short-term memory. Enjoy.
