This is a great game that engages planning and higher order thinking skills. Relevant to Year 7 science unit on Wetlands. Great for visualising sustainability.
“Harmony Day 21 March is a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home – from the traditional owners of this land to those who have come from many countries around the world. By participating in Harmony Day activities, we can learn and understand how all Australians from diverse backgrounds equally belong to this nation and enrich it.”
What shall we do? Maybe adapt the clickety-clack. Maybe re-vision the kusudama flower/ball project.
What can YOU do with one piece of paper?

My little book club (called RED) has an idea. Each of our 9 members has chosen our favourite book from 2013 and we want to donate the collection to a group of book lovers in need of books.
More specifically, we want to give them to a group of women (18+) who need English books. And we want to do this every year – maybe the same group, maybe different groups. Essentially, we’re seeking to fund a book club for women who struggle to access quality contemporary fiction.
Problem: we don’t know a group of women who would value our gift. This is not a random donation – we want it to be a personal gesture. Some of our thoughts have been – tertiary English students in remote universities in Thailand or China; English teachers in Namibia; Indian domestic violence women’s’ group; an NGO in a refugee camp…
We just need a contact person somewhere in the world so we know our books will end up with a group of women who’ll value them.
Please let me know if that is you, whether you’re in a group or know of one!
For other book clubs – perhaps you’d consider doing something similar. My suggestion: tweet using #bookspred and see if anyone matches up needing what you’re offering. It could be books of any language or genre, and for any age or demographic.
Similarly, if you are in a group that needs books, tweet a few details of the need/situation using #bookspred, and see who responds…
“The Penguin Foundation has a global callout for knitters to make pullovers for penguins in rehab. Penguins caught in oil spills need the little jumpers to keep warm and to stop them from trying to clean the toxic oil off with their beaks.”
