This project was made with children aged 3 and 4. I do not have any photos of the process alone but it was pretty straight forward.
The theme at the class was communication about which children spoke already on few occasions with their class teachers.
I prepared a table full of wooden blocks of all sorts of forms, shapes and sizes. Each child got a partner so they were divided into groups of two, usually together with a good friend.
They were asked to make ONE animal out of wood with their partner together. They need to communicate which animal will they make or simply start making one by discussing which blocks are appropriate and which not, who will glued which part, which colour will they use, what will be their animals name etc.
After all went fine and great they had to decide who will take their animal home and when will s/he bring it back so the other child could keep it for a while.
Oh? Was the reaction. And Oh! And then the discussion were really funny:
I will have it for three days and then I will bring it to you, ok?
And then you will have it for one night and bring it to me, ok?
So it all went fine and fair. As long as I know. And I am pretty sure this was such a good (and also a bit tough) lesson. It was actually great!
