Topic: “I have rights” – children are taught their rights by playing with the Photon robot.
• Learn how to use modern technologies safely
• Practice talking about your personal observations
• Practice listening carefully
• Learn to differentiate looks
• Encourage children to make friendly gestures towards classmates
• Practice patience and control of emotions
• Portraits of children from different parts of the world
We are all different
Hang pictures of children from different parts of the world in one part of the room. Ask the children to go to the improvised gallery with you to admire the exhibits. Ask them to study the pictures carefully and share their observations.
Then walk to each child in the mirror and ask them to describe their appearance (eye color, hair color, etc.). At the end, describe Photon and his character.
Watch Jänku-Jussi’s video “Jänku-Juss talks about children’s rights and responsibilities”. After the video, discuss the children’s feelings (how they felt while watching the video).
Note! The result of this task is a difference in the appearance and character of children, as well as in the need for rights and responsibilities.
Photon likes to be patted
Ask the children to study the lesson. Tell them that Photon likes being patted. If children go to pat the robot, secretly program the robot at the same time (use the touch sensor). Explain the new possibilities of Photon to the children. Divide the children into teams of two. One child should program the Photon and the other should activate the program by patting the Photon.
Note! Each program should contain up to 5 reactions. Children can choose the sounds and colors they like.
Ask the children to create teams of two. Two circles must be drawn – the inner and the outer. Children must stand facing each other. Now show the children how people greet each other in the rest of the world. For example, “Kon’nichi wa” in Japan or “Wai” in Thailand (at the same time a slight bow, palms pressed to the chin in prayer). The inner circle should move to the right to face the next child.
Other examples (greetings in other languages):
“Hola” in Spanish
American style: Throw five at the top and bottom
Greek style: pat each other on the back
Pigsty, stable or barn
