Spread the Word: Wanjil
Wanjil
Season 1  |  Episode 10  |  Disney Channel  |  October 24, 2019

How do you explain to your best friends, without insulting them, that you want to come and play with them but you simply can't? The young girls in this episode face exactly that problem. The solution? Wanjil, the Kuku Yalanji word for that exact occasion. Friendship saved!
Suggested Classroom Activities: Turn and talk: When have you really wanted to play with your friends but you haven't been able to? Have you ever had to miss a party or a fun event because you had other things to do? Share your experiences with a partner or small group then choose one example for a role play. Perform the play for the class, make sure the person who can't come and play says 'Wanjil' to their friends! Art: Draw or paint a self portrait showing how your face looks when you miss out on doing something fun. Include a thought bubble in your artwork with the word 'wanjil' inside it. You might want to look at your face in a mirror then copy your expression as you draw.
