Introducing Horse Play - Our First Project

Our first project of the year is around horses.  
Some children showed an interest in horses last year but we didn't have
time to explore it.
Since we are a drop in program and new children are attending I wanted to see 
if there was still interest so I set up a small world play.
As the children played I encouraged the grown ups to ask them what they
know about horses and what they want to know.
We kept a list for future parts of our project.
It is very apparent that horses are still an interest 
as I watched the very young to the oldest children play.
At the end of each day I would find different scenarios,
evidence of the children's imaginations.

    1. Hi Hudson, our projects help some children learn more about something the children are interested as well as introducing new things to other children.

    1. HI Andrea, I was quite surprised when I saw all the horses piled into one little field. I wonder why the little boy did that? I wonder what he was thinking?
