Every journey stick tells a story. When Australian Aborigines went on long journeys they sometimes tied objects to a stick to help them record there travels. They would start at one end of the stick and work along it as they went; the objects would help them to remember events and experiences on their journey and to tell others of their adventures.
Go on a journey with a friend and make a journey stick. Stop along the way and collect stuff to remind you of the places you go, and the things you see and do.
When you get back, share your journey stick with other people and use it to tell about your adventure. You can even make a journey book and use the things you found to illustrate it.
Preparing for your journey
« Where you and your friend will go?
« What might you find or experience?
« How will you attach the items to the stick?
« Make sure you discuss your plans with your parent or guardian.
Telling your story
Introduce your journey then start at the first thing you tied to the stick and use it as a reminder of how your journey began. Then work your way along the stick telling the story behind everything.
