Learning outcome: They used their imagination skills and thought of different features for their new discovered planet.
PP2 geckos are learning about solar system. To make this a practical experience and tickle their creativity we designed an activity, where, they imagined and became astronaut for a day and explored the space in the make believe rocket created by the facilitators. They wore their astronaut helmet and entered their rocket. Later they pretended to discover a new planet and illustrated their finding of an imaginary new planet. They named their new planet and described the weather, colour and number of moons of their newly discovered planet. These young astronauts surely enjoyed their time in the rocket and discovering a new planet.
