Warr
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  Disney Channel  |  July 31, 2019

What do you do when you need to get someone's attention really quickly? When you need to alert the people around you to something important that you see, and "hey!" doesn't quite cut it? The kids in this class are in desperate need for such a word. Thankfully palawa kani, the language of Tasmanian Aborigines, has a great word for that: warr!
Suggested Classroom Activities: Role play: Think of a time where you might need to quickly get someone's attention. Act it out in a pair or small group and make sure you use the Palawa Kani word 'Warr!'. Art: Draw a comic with someone saying the word 'Warr!' Geography: Find Tasmania on a map of Australia. Write one or two sentences about Tasmania. eg: It is an island. It is near Victoria.
