The preschool children have shown a recent interest in the world around them, one of the children has had a bank note from Malaysia that their auntie gave to them. This got the children wondering where Malaysia was. Today in the preschool room the children have been looking at world maps in the atlas and at pictures of people from different communities around the world. They have been very interested in looking at the similarities and differences between people from around the world. One of the children asked where polar bears come from, so we looked in the atlas to find out where they lived, then we had a look for people that looked like the lived somewhere cold. The children decided that the pictures of the Inuit children looked like they live in a cold place as they had very furry hoods!
