TEACHING RESOURCE FOR HARMONY DAY – $25
FROM THE AUSTRALIAN CHILDREN’S MUSIC FOUNDATION (ACMF)
Harmony Day is held every year on the 21st March to coincide with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
The message of Harmony Day is everyone belongs. It’s a day to celebrate Australia’s diversity – a day of cultural respect. What better way to celebrate than through the medium of song?
We have included four songs in this resource – the first two are more suitable for younger children, and the last two for older children. However, you, as the teacher, know what your children can manage!
For each song there is a ‘how to best teach this’ guide, and steps to make the learning process as easy as possible – but please see this only as a guide! Hopefully you may be inspired to create some new teaching ideas of your own from this resource.
As with all ACMF teaching resources, there are links throughout the document identifying which elements of the National Curriculum are being addressed.
