«The children’s curiosity, creativity and thirst for knowledge shall be acknowledged, stimulated and form the basis for their learning prosecess. The children shall be able to explore, discover and understand correlations, broaden their perspectives and gain new insights.» (From the Norwegian Framework plan for Kindergartens)
ESERO Norway has developed space activities for the youngest learners based on these values. Start a project about outer space in the kindergarten, and let the children’s interests take the project further. The activities can be used in any order, alone or with others, but the goal is the same. Let the children play to become even more curious about what is out there.
