Aboriginal-Style Dreamtime Stories
Aboriginal families share their culture and heritage through sharing ‘Dreamtime Stories’ – tales from the creation era of their homeland. Through these stories they learn about the formation of the land and animals around them, as well as teaching morals and family values. Our first step was to explore some of these fantastic stories, what features were we able to spot? How was this text type different to others we had looked at?
Next we looked at visually mapping our stories to create a plan in our minds of how we would approach this writing style. Following that we drafted, edited and decorated our stories, have a look at some of our finished stories!
