The Dreamtime or Dreaming

In most stories of the Dreaming, the Ancestor Spirits came to the earth in human form and as they moved through the land, they created the animals, plants, rocks and other forms of the land that we know today.

Once the ancestor spirits had created the world, they changed into trees, stars, rocks, watering holes, etc. These are the sacred places of Aboriginal culture and they have special properties. Because the ancestors did not disappear at the end of the Dreaming, but remained in these sacred sites, the Dreaming is never-ending, linking the past and the present, the people and the land.

1. Read and find who where, when and what.
2. Who created life on Earth? Where are these creators now?
3. Watch and list the symbols used by the art teacher.
