Child-led Learning .... Ice Dinosaurs


As well as being an enormous amount of fun, child - led learning leads to great educational and developmental outcomes.


These children have shown an interest in dinosaurs. Children are likely to be far more engaged in learning if the actual learning programme stems directly from their own ideas and is therefor meaningful to them.


This dinosaur activity that began as an interest in dinosaurs, was then extended to a sensory frozen activity. The children put their dinosaurs into water which they then froze giving them hours of fun playing with ice which was quickly turning to water.

They were then able to chip away at the ice with utensils they sourced from the outdoor environment providing lots of activity, outdoors in the sunshine.


Through this process they were then able to explore the concepts of hot and cold, solids and liquids in a fun filled child led activity
