    The purpose is to spotlight that we need to make mistakes to get the best result. By putting a mistake in the mistake box we are able to celebrate or handle the mistake. Camilla shared plans for making a "Mistake Tree" for older children on which you can hang your mistakes. If anyone else can use a mistake, they can take it and...

  • Thank you for sharing Robin. LEGO bricks are a great manipulative but household materials can be used as well. Please visit https://learningthroughplay.com/ or https://createwithanything.legofoundation.com/en/intro/ for more ideas.

  • Good luck and thank you for being part of the course Shyamali

  • Please come back and let us know how it goes when you have tried this with your class Anju

  • Great to hear. Thank you Dalin

  • To ensure that children learn through this activity requires coaching and a facilitator that is able to observe, build on and extend children's thinking ideas. Great job Anju.

  • Thank you for sharing Tom and lovely to see how this girl managed to communicate her feelings to the class. Please share the reflections from the class after you have tried this activity

  • We could not agree more. There is an urgent need for rethinking how we equip children with the skills needed to successfully navigate today as well as an uncertain and complex future.

  • Wonderful to hear Shyamali. When will you be back to school?

  • Let us know how you get on!

  • Agree. The project Cynthia describes is really great

  • Please let us know how it goes Diane

  • We would love to know how it goes!

  • Wonderful examples. Every classroom should have a Feelings Board! Thank you Diane

  • Thank you Julie. There is no maximum capacity to this classroom :-)

  • So true. Most people are very surprised by the amount of skills in action and we often use this activity when introducing learning through play to an adult audience

  • Really glad that you could not resist the temptation to involve them :-) It's just a lot more fun with more people and especially with your children!

  • Thank you Andrea and this is exactly what we hope children will feel. That their duck is a great as all the other ducks in the pond despite that they all look different.

  • Thank you for sharing Joan. Unfortunately, we cannot provide URL links in this version. Glad you managed to solve it

  • What a wonderful example. Thank you for sharing Andrea

  • We hope the activities in Weeks 2 and 3 will give you some inspiration to handle this challenge.

  • Exactly. From the earliest moments of infancy, children have an amazing natural ability to learn about the world through play. Imagining yourself as a character in a story is a way for children to practice original thinking, which is one of the main cognitive processes in creativity!
