Does this build on prior experiences/interests of the children?

This group activity extends on the childrens learning from previous lessons about nature. The children have been m asking
use of the nature collage table.
What is the focus? About what am I being intentional? Will I observe/record information?
This learning experience will give children the opportunity to take their learning and creativity further, with the use

Provide extra support if necessary
Show children examples of other childrens work if they need assistance with ideas

Evaluation / Reflection:
The children enjoyed participating in the learning activity. The first couple of times were a little fidgety as the contact paper
was very sticky and we needed to get the hang of using it first. The end results look great and the children will gain further
learning from this when they engage in the light table learning space. I will continue this lesson tomorrow to ensure that
the children have the opportunity to get the most out of the experience.
