There are currently about 1300 ethnic groups in Indonesia. This unit introduces students about the importance of understanding the history behind some of these tribes.
The lessons are structured in a way that allows students to learn the different cultural traditions and customs within each group. These are followed by opportunities for students to fill in worksheets related to each slide. In doing so, they can develop a deeper understanding of the different Indonesian tribes and explore the historical concepts of their heritage.
Today, we rarely see kids spend their time playing traditional games because they prefer to spend their time playing with their smartphones. Could you imagine how people’s life before smartphones?
This unit shows Indonesian traditional games commonly played by Indonesian kids. It gives students an understanding of how to make the Indonesian traditional games and how Indonesian kids play them. It also gives them chances to try some worksheets about Indonesian traditional games to check their understandings.
Since Indonesia is a diverse and multicultural country of origins and religions, it has a good mix of cultural events, ceremonies, and festivals. Throughout the year, a variety of festivals in Indonesia are celebrated, making it a fascinating location for tourists all year long.
This unit helps students to learn and know Indonesian festivals and the details about them, such as the history, the activities, and the dates of the festivals. Besides, students could also check their understanding of Indonesian festivals by doing the students’ worksheets related to the topic.
Indonesia is a land full of culture and traditions because it comprises many different cultures gathered together. Since the beginning, dance has always been an integral part of Indonesian culture. They are used to celebrate important milestones, tell a story, and many more.
To better understand and immerse students in Indonesian traditional dance, IKAN has compiled information about it and created students’ worksheets to make students’ learning more fun.
IKAN (Ikatan Australia – Nusantara) works in collaboration with PPIA VIC to assist Australian school teachers in teaching their students about Indonesia whenever required. IKAN provides opportunities for personal interaction between Australian high school students and Indonesian university students, by which they can develop their communication skills in a professional setting, gain work and language exchange experience, and widen their connections. IKAN also helps Australian teachers guide their students when attending Indonesian events. Besides, IKAN also helps Australian teachers make teaching materials and students’ worksheets for their Indonesian classrooms in Australia. Therefore, this website functions as a publicly accessible page for Indonesian teachers, especially those in Australia.
