YouTube Tuesday: The Traveller

Welcome to another 'YouTube Tuesday'!

This week, I am focusing on an award-winning short film by Australian artist, Anna Glynn. 'The Traveller' follows the journey of a flying rabbit as he travels through the skies, much to the confusion of the birds around him. The backdrop is a silhouetted winter scene, lit by a full moon, and the background music makes for an ethereal soundscape.

This film is excellent for classroom use because it can be accessed on so many levels. Younger students could use it as a prompt for their own imaginary tales, while older students can engage in deeper conversations about metaphors and symbols. I look forward to trying this video out with my students and would love to hear from anyone who gives it a go.
