Music and Art from Down Under

This past week, the students were introduced to the music of Australia. Joëlle brought a didgeridoo to school and showed short videos on traditional music of Indigenous Australian peoples.

We also learned a fun song called the “Native Animal Song” by Mereki. The 5th and 6th grade class even learned to play it on the Ukulele, much to the pleasure of our preschoolers!
In art, Dasha created traditional Aboriginal art using acrylic paints and wooden sticks. We learned the meanings of several symbols used in aboriginal dot paintings. 
We also created an Aboriginal Dreamtime art mosaics using Orb Factory Magnetic Dreaming kits.

Please, come check out our work on display in the hallways or visit our on-line museum at
