As a new interest in dinosaurs emerge from our young learners, we have tugged into the cloak of curiosity.
During circle time, the teacher asked, what will happen if we turn off all the lights?
Smart theories emerged.
So we turned off all the lights, took a flashlight and shone it.
We then took a long thin tube, inserted the flashlight in it and shone it on the ceiling.
The learners’ faces were filled with wonder as they saw a concentrated dancing light on the ceiling.
We then showed an old overhead projector.
Projected the light on a big paper posted on the wall.
And placed a dinosaur on the overhead projector.
Our amazing learners took turns in tracing the dinosaur on the wall.
When our Middle school buddies arrived, they read as a book about emotions with our photos in it!
We then went outside to take art in the exciting game that follows.
The rules were explained to us…
And we listened intently
We were playing a game of junk food tag!
Our buddies were the ‘junk foods’
We were asked to wear a special vest
Whenever one of the junk foods catch us, our vests are filled in with one plastic ball
Until it is all filled. Representing how we ‘fill up’ our bodies with unhealthy content when we eat junk foods.
