Toys 

What better way to develop historical knowledge than through play.

RECOMMENDED FOR FOUNDATION - YEAR 3

 

The best way to learn how toys have evolved over time is to play with them. 

In this incursion, students rotate through a number of stations exploring varying toy themes. They will discover how toys have evolved over time by exploring their movements, cultural significance and the materials they are made from. Student’s imaginations will be engaged and their sharing skills encouraged as they encounter examples of toys from as early as 2000 BC - the oldest toys in the world!

Our qualified teachers are fantastic at tailoring sessions to suit your focus and we can make links to subjects such as English, Science, History, Design & Technology or for topics such as History of Toys, Forces, Push & Pull, Material & Movement and Science Week

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Very positive, engaging experience. Very well organised with explicit instructions. It was inclusive, all of our students with special needs had a great time. The kids had a ball and I believe that they all learnt something about teamwork and resilience. Thank you!

Thanks to Mel, the students loved the experience. It's great to know that they will remember the experience and have a vice (their take-home crystals) to use to bring them happy thoughts in times of sadness/anger! Hopefully we will have a unit next year that will be enhanced by one of your programs.

The Prep children had a fantastic session with the variety of toys. Their interaction reinforced the learning areas we were working through, such as movement, materials, texture and so on.
Thank you for an enjoyable and worthwhile session.
