Mini Margies News - Intercultural Understandings about Family 15

Our Inquiry topics of Families started us wondering about what different families eat and how they cook and live.  In Room 20 and 21 we made bread and damper from scratch and cooked it in the oven.

We learnt about Aboriginal culture in the Noongar region and more specifically the Wardandi, which is where we live.Mini Margies News - Intercultural Understandings about Family 18Kelley, Crystal and Ben  together with Ange led our morning as we learnt about: traditional words, bush foods, clothing, foods and much more. We made damper and shaped it into a ‘wogyl’, wound it around a stick and cooked it over an open fire.
