I used these cards in a fun and active circle game with my small group of three and four-year-olds.
The children took it turns picking a card and I read out the instruction (most of which they couldfigure out from the picture).
They really enjoyed the opportunity to get up and dance, move, singand shout in different ways acting out the various animal actions or sounds.
It was a great chance toembed an Aboriginal perspective and learn about Australian culture through a super fun group gamethat encourages turn taking and listening skills.
