Miki Kanai's curator insight, April 10, 12:58 AM
This resource by TES Australia is a simple yet fun and effective IWB activity, appropriate for stage 1 students. 

A great suggestion for its use in a classroom, is to open this up on the IWB at the beginning of each day, for students to involve themselves in open discussions about the weather on that day. By putting it up on the IWB, students can move around different features on the screen using their fingers, what the environment will be looking like, what the children should be wearing, etc, on a particular day with a particular weather. Discussions can include what the appropriate type of clothing is for the day and why, what kind of leisure activities can be taken, as well as what kind of actions may be necessary (e.g. drink lots of water on a hot day, stay inside if there’s a storm outside). 

This type of interactive resource allows for a multi sensory learning experience for students to take in place (Tayloe et al, 2012), where they are given the opportunities to not only enjoy partaking in the activity itself, but also enabling them to connect to the topic at a personal level, essentially linking learning with real life experiences.

Tess Taylor's curator insight, April 9, 12:27 AM
Outcomes: 
 describes features of places and the connections people have with places GE1-1 

 Content: 
investigate the weather and seasons of places, for example: (ACHGK006) 
 - Examination of how different cultural groups, including Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Peoples, describe weather, seasons or seasonal calendars 


 “As a multicultural nation we must rightfully understand the position of the original inhabitants” (Van Issum 2010, p. 59) .It is therefore essential that teachers include a study of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people when exploring weather and seasons as they developed an intricate understanding of the environment over many thousands of years. The meteorological view of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is very diverse, thus all around Australia exists different seasonal calendars. This interactive resource represents the Mirrawong Calendar, (approximately 50km east of Kununurra inside Northern Territory) and shows three major seasons. 

 This calendar is interactive, visually appealing and easy to navigate, therefore ideal for Stage 1. The calendar can be explored as a whole class on an Interactive Whiteboard or individually, where the teacher creates a worksheet with certain comprehension questions regarding the seasons. Attached to the calendar is a movie titled “Miriwoong Traditional Weather Knowledge: Helping to understand indicators of seasonal change”. This movie is subtitled, therefore could be difficult for some Stage 1 learners, but can be watched as a useful resource for the teacher, to learn more about the topic at hand.
