Module 3 Assignment

The activity set I would like to use in my classroom is Space and Aliens.

I think all children are amazed with aliens and Infants especially.

I love the Special Life (ESERO) of acting out and using role-play. Getting the children up and active.

A starter question is always a great idea and a way of finding out the children’s ideas and previous knowledge which makes way for a classroom discussion then.

Children would love drawing and designing their own alien and as another poster suggested the book Aliens Love Underpants would be great to stimulate their imagination and get them interested.

They could then extend this by making a Martian as suggested using skills such as predicting, investigating and sharing. Children love making things/art and perhaps could work in pairs for this activity.
