Houses in the classroom

Español

This is a project we made in the Y1 class at Endaze International School.

We worked along with the teachers in a two and a half hours session held in the classroom, during the school schedule. The idea was to link the activity with the objectives and topics they are covering as part of the curriculum. They have been learning about houses as one of the learning outcomes for Geography and History for that term.

The project was to build the model of a house.

The children had been collecting some recycled materials from home in the previous weeks.

The day of the activity, we managed to put together a wide variety of materials for them to build the houses. First of all, we talked about what a house is. What are the differences between other buildings and what we call a house. They were very excited and really interested in the subject. They could not stop making questions. They had been working already about that in that term, so it was a good way to summarize and to reinforce concepts with this hands-on project.

Working in groups they began to gather materials and to make decisions of the house they wanted to build. They were very busy during the time we were doing the activity and they showed a good knowledge on the topic of houses. We could perceive the fresh outlook the children always have. How did we enjoy that!

 

HACEMOS CASAS EN CLASE

 

Este proyecto lo hicimos en la clase de Y1 (Tercero de Infantil) del Colegio Internacional Endaze. Estuvimos trabajando con los profesores en una sesión de dos horas y media en la clase, dentro del horario escolar. La idea era conectar la actividad con los objetivos y materias que están dando dentro del Programa Escolar. En ese trimestre, habían estado aprendiendo sobre casas dentro de Geografía e Historia. 

El proyecto era construir la maqueta de una casa.

Los niños y las niñas habían traído materiales reciclados de casa las semanas antes.

El día de la actividad, conseguimos reunir una gran variedad de material reciclado para que pudieran usarlo en la maqueta. Lo primero que hicimos fue hablar de qué es una casa. Cuáles son las diferencias entre lo que llamamos una casa y otro tipo de edificios.  No podían parar de hacer preguntas. Se veía que estaban muy contentos y bastante interesados en el tema. Ya habían estado trabajando en esta materia durante el trimestre, así que una actividad de este tipo práctico fue una buena manera de resumir y fijar conceptos.
