AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

My Year 9 English students have just completed studying Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
They were required to create character masks for an assessment oral.
One student decided to create a half mask representing Capulet.

A creative approach to make it relevant to a student's present day understanding. Love the mask and the poem.
