Activity Introduction

Quick summary: This lesson is based on Bluey, Season 2, Featherwand. It uses intentional teaching strategies to focus on the capabilities of inclusivity. Children will take part in an inclusive imagination game using an everyday object as a featherwand. They focus on taking turns to encourage inclusive play. The children create actions for the group to follow, under the direction of the featherwand. It’s all up to the children to decide what the featherwand will do as they direct the actions of the featherwand.
