Why teach all Australian kids about Aboriginal astronomy?

Teaching Australian children about Aboriginal astronomy provides a great opportunity to explore:

  • the link between land and sky
  • animal and plant behaviour
  • navigation
  • Aboriginal law
  • seasons and weather
  • the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

A great addition to your collection of First Nations resources

The content in this poster addresses the cross-curricular priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Culture. It could also be used to guide conversations with your students in conjunction with NAIDOC Week celebrations.
