How to make a national icon!

I like this idea but I'd throw in some maths - using a protractor to draw the circles on scrap paper/cardboard/newspaper, then cutting the sails out from that.  : )

This is a very simple yet fun craft task that students can complete in a short time span and is a great way to introduce the topic of significant built features of Australia to students. The Opera House is one of the most renowned features not only by Australian but recognised by the world. By beginning a unit about built environments with a practical task can stimulate great discussion and allow students to be more interested in the topic itself. In Stage 2, it is the first time that they are requried to name and describe significant buildings of Australia as before this, there is only a focus towards their immediate environment. Therefore discussion and becoming familiar with such buildings in imperative for students, especially those beginning Stage 2.


Graves (1990) states that the best way to teach about the built environment in the curriculum is by integrating it with 'existing curriculum patterns' (p.3). Rather than spoon feeding information about the built environment to students straight away, by linking Visual Arts, students will be encouraged to naturally learn and become inquisitive about such features in a fun and practical way. This Opera House making task will be perfect as students will have something personal to relate to; their very own Opera House! Teachers can further investigate the Opera House with the students to go in more depth as well.
