Join the ACTF, ACMI and AFL legend Eddie Betts to learn about characters in the new children’s series Eddie’s Lil’ Homies. Students will apply their learning in a character design exercise.
Eddie Betts is a former AFL player, media personality and author. Inspired by Eddie’s popular book series, Eddie’s Lil’ Homies is a new animated children’s TV series by the same name.
In this virtual workshop, students in Foundation to Year 2 will meet the characters inEddie’s Lil’ Homiesand learn how they navigate the fun and challenges of friendship. Each character brings unique skills and perspectives to the playground: embracing and respecting these differences makes the gang stronger! Eddie will discuss the characters and what we can learn from their interactions.
Students will apply their learning by designing a fictional character based on their qualities and skills. Follow-up activities for the classroom will also be provided to teachers.
