Australians….but who are we?

tyYear 4 is exploring the concept of multiculturalism and Australian identity. During the inquiry, students have shared their own family trees, cultural backgrounds, unique traditions, arts, celebrations and foods. We have a collection of items that each girl has brought to school to talk about their heritage. This has led to an appreciation that as Australians we come from many different cultural backgrounds. In these pictures we have displayed an item that represents the background of everyone in the class. We come from quite diverse backgrounds which makes us a very interesting group of children.
