Grades: Kindergarten- 4th, Valentine’s Day, Life Skills, Critical Thinking
By Sparking Children’s Thinkbility
Fun and engaging exercises to explore love and kindness
The children start by exploring questions such as “How can you spread love wherever you go?” and “How can you dream big?” The students are asked to extract ideas, such as “Put love in an ice-cream and share it.” These ideas may help them when they design a machine that spreads love or write a heart-shaped poem.
The students are also asked to think about different aspects of the design of the machine, for example, “How you want to spread the love?” and “What kind of love do you want to spread?”
