The caterpillar group has been playing with a lot of animals lately. During their play, I've observed the children making their own homes, making their own zoos, and saving the animals from danger!
I thought I would come up with an activity where the children could save the animals in a different way. I got an empty box and taped string from side to side inside the box. I put all different types of animals in the box, then have the children use any kind of materials they wanted, even their hands to save the animals. I also added music that was the sound of animals so it can be realistic.
When the caterpillar group were ready to try this activity, these are the observations that were made
After the children tried those ways, they wanted to make their own animal rescue by changing the strings around in the box and change the animals from what I had previously put in the box to sea creatures such as sharks and octopuses'.
It was amazing to see how creative the children can be using their own imaginations when it comes to saving animals!
