What Your Child will Learn in March and April 2015
Theme for the month : Our Solar System
Our Earth is one of the nine planets that continuously circle the sun, making up our solar system. While children are always intrigued to know all about our planet earth they would be equally keen to know about our solar system. Children are fascinated by the great wonder beyond the sky. The twinkling stars seem like a magical place that they would like to visit. They also have a knack for memorizing information about the solar system. Thus, through this unit we aim to make them understand facts on these in an interesting way that would leave a long lasting impression on their minds.
The main objective is for our children to inculcate a lifelong interest and curiosity in the wonders of the universe.
Dramatic play and techno-aided lessons will help to bring the universe into the classroom.
You can expand their learning experience by camping under the night sky or taking them for a trip to the planetarium. Even though, they won’t understand everything, they will be fascinated by the magnitude and movement of the stars and constellations. To make their learning more interesting you can visit some websites mentioned below and explore books related to the theme.
