JOURNEY TO MARS

RECOMMENDED FOR FOUNDATION -  Foundation to Year 3

This workshop has a experimental and explorative focus.

Learning will take place in a highly engaging and practical manner.

 

A learning philosophy that puts the child at the centre of a two way process, engages different learning

styles, and focuses on engaging children in participating and enjoying the learning environment.

We use a highly experiential approach designed to engage a broad range senses, and tactile

kineasthethic approaches including engaging bespoke costumes, props and sounds.

We use:

 

Facilitation Skills:

You only remember 20% of what someone told you, you remember 80% of what you discover for yourself.

 

Curriculum Linked Learning:

 

  • We will explore the effect of temperature on the environment (science understanding)

 

  • Observe Changes that occur in the sky and landscape (Science  Understanding)

 

  • Sharing of observation and ideas through role play (science role play)

 

  • Use of Interaction skills including taking turns and listening (Literacy)

 

Children will experience the following:
 
  • Children begin on planet earth, discovering the solar system and then jetting to space on a mission of further exploration to explore Mars.

 

  • On the journey to Mars children take a round trip and gather facts and information about the solar system. On the journey we will enjoy the view and interact in slow motion, meme, freeze framing and improvisation the space and planets around us.

 

  • Finally landing on Mars we explore the red planet for food, water and signs of life.

Workshop Methodology:

 

This workshop has a experimental and explorative focus. Learning will take place in a highly engaging and practical manner.

Outcome 1 (Identity):

 

Children have a strong sense of identity, when they:

 

  • Co-operate – e.g. working collaboratively with others when creating a storm on Mars

  • Use role play to create different elements of space and take on their significant features and movement e.g. Twinkling Stars, Black Hole

Outcome 3 (Well Being):
 

Children experience a strong sense of well-being when:

 

  • They use physical activity to express themselves through movements mimicking the features and elements of space

  • Use physical expression to grasp a concept like gravity – pretending to be an astronaut

Outcome 2 (Community)
 

Children connect and contribute to their world, when they:

 

  • Use drama to broaden their understanding of Space and elements in space

  • Explore Effects of temperature on the environment – i.e. earth can maintain life compared to Mars

Outcome 4 (Learning):

 

Children are confident and involved learners when:

 

  • They use role play to investigate and explore space – simple differences between planets

  • They discuss and think about why planets, stars and other elements are different

Outcome 5 (Communication)
 

Children are effective communicators when they:

 

  • Communicate and interact verbally and non-verbally to demonstrate an understanding of differences on Mars and in space and on earth.
