Activity Introduction

Quick summary: This lesson is based on Bluey, Season 2, Road Trip. It uses intentional teaching strategies to focus on the capabilities of patience. Children will explore the elements of being patient. Children begin by exploring the things in the outside world that can help us when waiting. They then play a game of cloud watching to occupy their curious minds when waiting. The aim of this lesson is to support children to use their imaginations to discover patience through simple games.

This is an official Bluey lesson that celebrates the joy and curiosity of Bluey and allows children to build social and emotional intelligence and develop oral language skills. Most of all it has been designed to inspire creativity and imagination in your children!

Teacher Worksheet

Part A: Watch Bluey 

Step 1. Begin by watching the Bluey episode Road Trip.

You can watch this episode on ABC iView or through Enhance TV.

Road Trip synopsis: Bluey and Bingo find ways to entertain themselves on a family road trip, while Dad tries to stay ahead of the Grey Nomad convoy or risk getting a camping spot near the toilets.

Begin by watching a small segment and asking the children to predict what they think is going to happen. Episodes of Bluey are perfectly suited to this: you can pause the clip after the first segment, when the episode name is on screen.

Lead a quick discussion to ask the children to make a prediction about the episode:

  • What do you think is going to happen?

Encourage the children to use ‘I think’ statements when sharing their thoughts with the group.

Once a few ‘I think’ ideas have been shared, continue to watch the full episode.

Once the episode has finished, take a few minutes to talk about what children noticed.
