When was it? Who was involved? What happened? What did you do? What were the consequences? How did you feel? Did you talk about it afterwards? Did you understand each other in the end?

The walkabout is an Aboriginal rite of passage. Other cultures have different ceremonies to mark the transition from teenager to adult. 

Brainstorm on how many you know. Search the internet or library. Pick one and find as many facts about it as you can. Be prepared to present your findings to the class.
