This week, the Sparks delved deeper into their Marine Biology study by exploring the vast array of life that exists beneath the ocean’s surface.
The learners had a chance to hone their debating skills by discussing the topic “Are sea turtles better than fish?” This provided an opportunity to understand different perspectives and practice healthy disagreements.
Later in the week, the Spark studio participated in a beloved science experiment “Freddy the Fish”. This story was read to bring attention to pollution and sparked a conversation about how we can preserve the planet’s safety and health. On Friday, a Spark learner volunteered to read Rainbow Fish to his friends, and the studio was invited to create their rainbow fish craft.
The Sparks had a series of discussions throughout the week about the upcoming canned food drive which will take place next week, from December 11 to 15. During these discussions, the learners emphasized the importance of giving back to their community and brainstormed ways in which they can support those in need. They created posters and flyers to spread the word about the food drive and took ownership of the responsibility to be leaders on their campus.
This week in Spark Play, the children were eager to participate in “milk crate training” after earning the freedom to use all of their loose parts for playtime. At the end of the week, the learners helped clean up the campus by doing a trash pickup, and celebrated their hard work with a Friday dance party.
Have a great weekend, and be sure to bring your canned foods next week!
