Green School hosts a kindergarten and a primary school where learning is experiential, location and project based and the learning process is fit to the needs of children.
In kindergarten learning happens mainly through games, arts and crafts. When children asked about planets and astronauts and rockets, we have thought of creating an activity, where we do not simply speak about the planets and look at pictures, but create our own space rockets and tell the stories of astronauts, landing on the Moon and planets.
Because the school and the community aims to reduce the use of polluting materials and use „leftovers” from materials that we use daily, we have decided to create rockets from paper rolls with a little help from colored pencils and paper.
Kindergarten children have asked their parents to gather the paper rolls and bring them to Green School. We have decorated together the rolls, each child bringing in their own personality, preference for color. During the activity we have spoken about the structure of the universe - the space, its planets, the stars including the Sun, the Moon, the astronauts, Space Transportation Systems.
