1. The Outback (cc)

01. The Outback (cc)

With spectacular gorges, deserts, salt-lakes, caves and an astonishing variety of wildlife, the Outback of Australia is one of the world's last great wilderness areas. The landscape varies from region to region; so we concentrate on the style of the Aborigines - the first, nomadic inhabitants of the Outback. Projects include: Dilly Bag and Message Stick - Originally made from grasses to carry food, our bag is made from clay and oil pastels; and the stick is made with a tribal design. Pocket Pals - Making a fabric purse is a fun way to remember that Marsupials are animals that carry their young in a front pocket. Aboriginal Oil Pastel - Using oil pastels we create Aboriginal paintings of symbols, such as concentric circles and curved and straight lines. Aboriginal Punched Bolo Tie - Punched paper dots are the paint for this original bolo tie. Crocodile Candles - Here we create and decorate a unique Crocodile Candle to light your way on a dark trek into the wilderness. Hands-On Project 401 - Kids help other kids through their crafts. 04/08DE/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
