What You'll Get...

This comprehensive done for you Program Planner with templates and accompanying step by step Activity Guides gives you four inquiry led pathways to choose from in any order to guide your program.

Each pathway is designed to spark curiosity and engage children in hands-on learning experiences related to colours, rainbows and the natural world around them. 

With the Curiosity Spark Preschool Planner you’ll get different play based, active learning activities and curiosity sparks (open ended questions) for all 4 pathway topics to make learning about different aspects of colour and the natural world FUN. 

The four learning pathway topics featured in this edition are:

  • Becoming Colour Detectives: Children go on colour hunts, looking for different shades in the environment and documenting their discoveries. They also learn about where colours come from and engage in discussions about colours found in nature. 
  • Mixing Magic: Children become colour scientists and experiment with mixing primary colours to create new shades using materials like paint, play dough, and coloured water. They learn about colour blending and how their favourite colours are created. 
  • Investigating Nature's Rainbow: Children explore the colours found in living things by carefully examining flowers, leaves, insects, and other natural objects. They engage in activities like flower dissection, leaf rubbings, and creating nature-inspired colour charts.
  • Rainbow Makers: Children participate in collaborative art projects, sorting and arranging objects by colour to build rainbows. They also explore the use of colours in nature and discuss the purpose of patterns in the natural world. 

Over 150 pages of ideas you can use again and again for $47 

These curiosity sparks and playful activities encourage children to explore colours in nature, experiment with colour mixing, and investigate the colours found in living things.

All activities have been designed based on my over 30 years of hands-on experience in ECE to promote active learning, exploration, creativity, and critical thinking.
