Product Description

The city and the bush meet in this iconic poem where two polo teams battle it out for supremacy. Banjo Paterson's ballad is an exaggerated version of events but it speaks to the humour and heroism of those living in the bush.

The centre of this unit is a reading of the work which is embedded in a simple PowerPoint that breaks the study into three distinct sections; Before You Read, As You Read and After you Read. The associated worksheets provide practical activities to encourage students to explore the work in detail. Students are encouraged to look at the differences between the city and the country. The actual study of the poem looks at such things as exaggeration and hyperbole. Students are then encouraged to explore this extreme contrast in a piece of writing of their own.

There are also other works by Banjo Paterson which are worth investigating; Waltzing Matilda, The Geebung Polo Club, Mulga Bill's Bicycle, The Man from Snowy River and The Man from Ironbark.

There is also a collection of poems by Henry Lawson which includes, Andy's Gone with Cattle, Knocking Around, Mary Called Him Mister, Past Carin', The Faces in the Street and The Glass on the Bar.
