Depicting signs (DS)
In this video the teacher explains what depicting signs (DS) are and how they are used not just in Auslan, but used to break down all language barriers.
As a classroom activity; either as a whole class or in small groups, using DS signs, list as many of the sports played in the Olympic games (for example) in 5 minutes.
The same can be done for:
- types of musical instruments
- different animals (land or sea)
- chores around the home
- things you do to get ready
How many in each section can you think of as a whole classroom?
