Imaginative play and the children’s self-generated space inquiry-incorporating new students.
It seems that three weeks off school and an earthquake have not stopped the passion for the space inquiry. The new children have been drawn into the play scenario. I have found it absolutely fascinating to see the children go back to previous play ideas. They have started to rewrite the list of who will go on the space ship. This time the children have written lists with first and second names and they knew how to write them by themselves, last time it was scribble writing and copied names. Everyone has taken part.
The new ideas involve acting out space adventures and making new machines. I have tried to capture some of it on video… but it moves very fast!
This is the first one… I have gotten even better footage today… watch this space!
