Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 3 pages | Years: 1 - 4

Let your students’ beautiful selves shine using this personalised Harmony Day colouring activity.

Celebrate Diversity with Our Harmony Day Craft

Everyone belongs. 

On Harmony Day, we celebrate the cultural differences that make us stronger as a community—in our schools and workplaces, sports, activities and more. Because when we embrace inclusivity, we come together as a nation of people proud to be Australian!  

This community & culture Harmony Day resource includes teacher instructions with an example image of the finished product, and our person cutout template.

Students use colouring tools to represent themselves and their cultural backgrounds on their templates. When their artwork is complete, join the person cutouts together to create a paper chain to display in your classroom!
