::: all things aussie

Celebrating our Australian animals is always a great lead into celebrating other things Aussie.

Ellie V Pullin had a visit from Wild Action a little while back and we noticed that it was reflected in other parts of their play.

Animals in the sand …

a matching game …

with an Aboriginal theme.

Jigsaw puzzles…

photos on display …

and drawings.

Wild Action is a wonderful incursion which always gives the children a wonderful basis to extend their thinking, learning andย creativity.

This post has been added to the “World Animal Day 2011 – Bloghop” over at Angelique Please be sure to pop on over and see other “Children & Animals at Play”.

  1. beautiful to read and see how the children are involved in learning about animals and their culture. I believe strongly that children and animals make great playmates. That’s why I will do a playful initiative with the World Animal Day organisation for the world animal day 4th of oct.

    Wild Action is fantastic and we have had them many times. It is however sadly becoming very expensive for non-profit kinders to be able to afford them.

    ::: Like you Andrea we had Wild Action visit our children for MANY years … We haven’t looked into the price this year but we guess it must be very expensive to be feeding all those amazing creatures. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
