In this activity children aged between 3 and 5 will be demonstrating flexibility, imagination, and inventiveness in approaching tasks and activities. They will learn about setting goals and developing and following through on plans. They will also represent people, places or things through drawings, movement and three-dimensional objects.
The recommended resource for this activity is the LEGO® DUPLO® Creative Builder Set.
Ask the students to name some things they might see if they visited a lake or the ocean – for example, animals, birds, fish, boats and so forth. Ask students to explain things they might do on or near a lake or ocean.
Students create the boat and the lighthouse using the activity card. They can then create other objects that would be found in or near a lake or ocean. Ask students to create a story that explains what activities are going on in and around the water – a lake or ocean.
Then the children can build a town scenario and carry out further activities.
