Acting out the whale story Part 1

Here is one of the many dramatizations the children participated in after viewing the Whale rescue video in 'The Ocean Around Us' post below. Aria takes the part of the baby whale, Maya and Holly are the fishermen, and Macy and Grace are the whale watchers. Many other children took turns trying out the different roles.

"Children possess a hundred languages, a hundred ways of thinking, of expressing themselves, of understanding .The hundred languages are a metaphor for the extraordinary potential of children, their knowledge building and creative processes, the myriad of forms with which life is manifested and life constructed"
Loris Malaguzzi, Reggio Emilia, Italy

Most impressed. Great acting and real involvement by the wee actors. Such a good learning environment.
