JK Children and Parents Engage in the ‘Frog Journey’

During our recent Science Inquiry Festival, our JK students used a variety of materials to build with and express their frog ideas with their parents, including sharing their photography images, creating frogs in Origami, painting watercolour masterpieces, designing a model magic tadpole family, and observing the tadpole habitat.
“Partnerships with families and communities strengthen the ability of early childhood settings to meet the needs of young children.”

    Some ‘Science Inquiry Festival’ Thoughts from our JK Parents:
    • “We thought that the best part was the children calling out the titles of the slides, on the slide show. They were the… ‘chorus’!”
    • “We loved the tadpole updates each day at home. The experience was valuable because the children could see the changes in the tadpoles.”
    • “[My daughter] is a joyful, courageous and smart girl. I loved her project!”
    • “I was most interested to see that [my daughter] picked up the ‘life cycle’ and that she was most engaged in the learning.”
    • “[My daughter] so enjoyed the project! She came home and did, ‘Did you know that…?’ questions with us and especially her brother. She also found a book on ‘Amphibians’ as she developed her interest in frogs. She looked at this book frequently at home.”
