Tree Project – Preschool

Each of the educators brought a question to the group and, following a brainstorming process, interesting proposals were made by the chidren. Some of the questions of educators were:

  • How do children interact with trees at school? How is the life of the tree?
  • How is life inside the tree?
  • What does the tree offer? Shadow, fruits, seeds and lights.

Some of the observations of students:

When the tree tilts, the leaves fall, and it refreshes when the branches ‘wind’. Artur, 3 years-old

The root drinks and takes the water up there to the branches. João Pedro, 3 years-old

The sticks smell like flower. Arthur, 2 years-old

This tree I made is called mangapé. Mariana, 2 years-old

Games – Elementary School

Popular children’s games are passed from one generation to another, transformed according to culture and over time. Who created these games or even the songs behind the games? We really don’t know! However, we know they made many adults’ childhood remarkable and joyful. Having in mind the importance of parents/guardians on the learning process of the child, we built a box with basic materials for the construction of a book of songs and games that were part of the parent/guardian’s childhood to be shared with the class.

Environmental Education Project – Middle School

The Environmental Education Project creates a relationship between High and Middle School students concerning environmental education, making them aware of their role on the preservation of the place they live in.
