Journey sticks endless imagination ( Learning through play )

I am going to give you a bit of stick ....

No I really am going to give you a bit of stick : A journey stick.

Native American and Australian Aboriginals are said to have used journey sticks to tell stories about their travels. When they went on journeys they collected things and tied them to their stick in chronological order. By referring to their items on their stick they were able to remember their journey and recount their stories. This is a very personal way of recording a journey and there is no right or wrong way to make a journey stick.

Journey sticks can be used to explore places, create maps or used as a stimulus for creative writing of poetry.

One of the things you can do is make a card board slide so you can take a leaf slide.


Be sure not to pick any wild flowers.
