Following up on the children interests in dinosaurs, the
sandpit environment was transformed into a Jurassic World to ignite the
children’s curiosity and invite them to create their own stories.
This awesome experience enhanced and strengthened the
children’s oral communication and listening skills as the dinosaur experience
provoked plenty of conversations and social interactions.
It was an incredible experience that sparked the children’s
imagination and curiosity, and offered endless learning opportunities. Children
learnt about nature, different landscapes, and the importance of a sustainable
environment. The Educators explained where dinosaurs lived and what they needed
Dinosaurs are often associated with rough play, which also presented
the opportunity for discussions about fairness and respect. Not all dinosaurs
were ferocious meat-eaters; many only ate plants. Dinosaurs were diverse, just
like people are.
This Dinosaur Project will continue to help children engage
with a wide range of texts. As the children look to find out more about the dinosaurs,
we will facilitate their learning, researching, and investigating.
