LET’S BEE OUR OWN HOUSE MAKERS!
Can your ANT help? Or would you rather do some SPIDER web research?
This project can be delivered to Primary Schools as well as to other learning centres and cultural institutions.
Children are given the opportunity to create houses, picturing an imaginary future where our cities or villages would be intrinsically linked to nature. Taking inspiration from animal houses or plants’ structures, participants are encouraged to find out about how living things relate to their habitats in order to inform the decisions and solutions for their own project. Through teamwork, they design and build their houses (or even buildings) taking into consideration needs, functions and uses, while experimenting with and testing different materials and shapes.
Who is it for?
This workshop can be offered to children age 8-11, being designed according to participants’ disposition and to the aims and needs of the school or organisation's learning programme.
This activity can be run as an After-school Club or a Full Day Workshop (5-6 hours, for the whole family or for children only) or even as a 3-4-days Workshop, according to the childrens’ age and the organisation’s goals.
