6 and 7 year olds
We have been given an invitation to enter this Dream Car contest. There are iPads as prizes. That was enough to motivate the children.
We began by taking a walk to the teacher car park and making observational drawings of car wheels.
Back in the classroom, I read the children a story about a little boy who was given a peddle car.
We talked about what a dream car could have. I only contributed a few ideas, one being the recent invention of driverless cars. This was adopted by many of our budding inventors.
I took a photo of each child, incase they wanted to include this in their art.
|Grida has chosen the driverless option.|
|Eshita likes the more controlled option.|
The children have come up with some great ideas. The day ended before many had managed to complete their work, so I have asked their classroom teachers (they have two) to give them a little bit more finishing time.
I have photographed all their pictures, so they will have a record once the art goes to Toyota.
