The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about the area in which they live. Learning may focus on your local area, famous people, key landmarks and links to your city.
Choose a building they most admire in their local area. Make a model of that building using materials of their choice. (Playdough, junk modelling, lego etc…..) How well did they do? What would they do differently next time? What have they learnt?
Get out into the garden, pull up some weeds or mow the lawn? Does their garden need a tidy up? Maybe they could plant some seeds.
Recommendation at least 2 hours of exercise a week.
Were their family members all born in this local area? If not, how is their place of birth different to their own local area? If they were, how different is the local area since they were born? Talk about their memories of how it has changed.
Think about what would improve their local area? What is their local area lacking? What spoils their local area? What could be done?
