Firstly though, an apology if I came across as grumpy and rude yesterday in my post. I was feeling that way in myself just because of being sick and thought it may have across in my post. If it did, my apologies, dear readers. Am feeling much better today - much more like more normal self - Praise Yah for that!
Anyway....so this post is about how we sometimes 'do' Australian History.
plan and plan lessons in advance get inspired by watching an episode of Play School on ABC with Zippi where they are making Damper (an Aussie bread).
this has been planned for so long that I already have the recipe since I'm getting inspired on the spot, I have to go google and find a quick and easy RECIPE.
might take place early on in the morning when we are fresh and inspired happens at 4pm in the arvo between me cooking up the chicken casserole and settling the distressed toddler.
act in a cordial fashion go crazy over getting our hands in there...
none of it gets on the floor even though most of it nearly goes on the floor or on our clothes...
it looks good...
and tastes great (especially fresh out of the oven with butter melting on it and golden syrup too!!!)
And while we are enjoying that, I might happen to read from 'Story of Australia - Childcraft' and read about the explorer Thomas Mitchell and how he ate 'bush tucker' too.
And while we are eating and chatting and reading, we might just happen to learn and relate and enjoy being together too!
Well that's how we 'did' Australian History yesterday anyway.
(And we all loved it!)
More another time.
Love + blessings,
