I thought this was an amazing opportunity to do some bark painting with my kids at school and to talk about Aboriginal art.
As I had set up this painting activity outside the children collected other natural materials like small flowers and tried to paint with them as well.
This activity promoted so much language and was a wonderful sensory activity.
I love it when you find something interesting like this which provides the inspiration for so many learning experiences. My program didn't include Aboriginal dot painting last week but proved to be wonderful spontaneous teaching opportunity.
