Project: Transportation

For the next few weeks Kidscape’s Project will be about different forms of Transportation.  The main inspiration for this project has come from children’s observations. The children have been showing interest in transportation through play scenarios, counting and reading books.

We will explore aspects such as the meaning of transportation; different forms of transportation; who uses transportation; how does it impact our community; air pollution from transportation, emergency personal and infrastructure for the transportation.

Educators will observe and record children’s specific interests and these will be incorporated into daily planning.

We hope to engage children in all aspects of learning and if parents have any suggestions that may enrich our program they are more than welcome to share with educators, it is most appreciated.

1.1.1 Curriculum decision making contributes to each child’s learning and development outcomes in relation to their identity, connection with community, wellbeing, confidence as learners and effectiveness as communicators.
