    EC2 students storytelling through Lego play

    We started our new unit of Inquiry whose central idea is ‘Imagination can be shared through storytelling’. Students have been exploring what imagination is and what stories they can retell using their own words.

    EC2 class listened to a piece of music and drew what they had in their mind at that moment while trying to describe what the word imagination meant to them.

    They also role-played some of the stories they already knew and made different versions of them.
