Wombat stew

Fox holding a wombat in a basket

Who doesn’t love the story about Dingo attempting to make a wombat stew while all the other animals are trying to protect Wombat by recommending additional ingredients for the stew, such as mud, flies, creepy crawlies, feathers and gumnuts?! Encourage the children to make their own wombat stew.

Which ingredients dissolve and which don’t? Which ones float and which ones sink? Once the gooey brewy yummy chewy wombat stew has been cooked, the children can investigate how the Dingo could go about cleaning the water again. They can use sieves and filters and research other methods, possibly even building their own water purification plant.
