How to propose the scenario

Children are given simple instructions with a clear definition of objectives. The introduction to the scenario could be done with the common creation of a poster with the rules or a specially designed teaching card to be included in the notebook. The content of the scenario allows links to scientific and literary subjects.

Examples of activities:

  • First hints of traffic education, accompanied by a simple introduction to the highway code, signs, the rules to know how to respect when driving.
  • Math activity based on the first calculations of the interaction between time, speed and distance.
