We’ve finished our planning for outer space and now it is time to play.
We’ve started small and slow with two 'small world' play areas.
This is the first one they see as they walk in the room.
The second one is in the far corner of the room that will eventually
turn into outer space.
I was very lucky to find these space shuttles, astronauts and lunar
mobiles at a thrift store just last week.
Starting slow allows the children to explore the rockets and add to
the ideas of what our big cardboard rocket should look like when
we build it.
What parts does it have? Fuselage, windows, wings and …..
stay tune, we will begin building our play rocket very soon.
Did you notice, in the pictures, that only boys are playing with these toys. There were a few girls but I didn’t capture good pictures of them. I plan on asking the girls their thoughts, feelings and ideas of what we could add to this play.
