Teaching Ideas and free resources on the R.I.C. blog
This week's Freebie Friday giveaway is a page of Indigenous games!

A teacher from my school did this activity with her year 3s, to acknowledge National Sorry Day. Students were shown aboriginal symbols and then asked to draw them on their hands. This activity resulted in students learning about aboriginal culture. Well done Hannah! #NationalSorryDay #Aboriginalhistoryandculture #bestteacher
