Riley Callie, Bush Foods Snap Game
Riley Callie Resources came about from a desire to introduce young children to a fun and engaging way of learning Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) which incorporates Indigenous thinking and contexts. The team at Riley Callie firmly believe that STEM provides an ideal platform for educators and parents to introduce children to the rich depth of knowledge and unique perspectives that Indigenous Australia has to offer. The founder of Riley Callie is Debbie Hoger, a Dunghutti woman. In developing these resources, Debbie has drawn upon her knowledge about her own cultural heritage, as well as her educational background in Anthropology and Science to provide you with innovative products which make learning fun. Debbie has created wonderful products that not only engage children in STEM, but celebrate Indigenous Australia.
For thousands of years, Aboriginal people have utilised and cared for the Australian landscape. Plant foods consumed across the continent varies greatly, and the harvesting of these foods forms an important part of cultural, spiritual and community life.
With this Snap Game (which can also be used as a Memory Game), children can learn about the important concept of matching pairs and also learn about some Australian native plant bush foods.
