3. Present the name DIDGERIDOO.
4. Play the video and make pauses so you can comment with the class. The video is narrated with no subtitles, however, a good idea is to play it with no sound and make pauses, as recommended, paraphrasing the text that is given below:
- · The didgeridoo is a sacred Australian Aborigine instrument that dates back more than 40,000 years.
- · The didgeridoo is manufactured based on trunks hollowed out by termites. In Australia, there are thousands of termite mounds, and it is estimated that there are 20 million termites per hectare, tirelessly building great mountains of earth and clay.
- · Termites burrow into trees, especially the eucalyptus, hollowing them out but not killing them.
- · The men check the trees in the forest: if the termites have finished hollowing the wood out, the men will cut it down to make their valued instrument.
- · They clean it, removing the bark, and with an iron bar heated in a fire, they finish emptying the inside of the bough. The Didgeridoo is ready.
- · The musicians themselves are responsible for making and checking the sound of their instrument.
5. Narrate the video and talk about what they think about this instrument.
