After life had taken a hold of us all here in Australia with the colder weather upon us, two of the families finally managed to meet for our second session.
All were super excited to open the parcel from Ireland and see what our friends had sent. They were very impressed with the drawings but also with the information that they conveyed. They all started asking so many questions, which was great because that was exactly what today’s session was about!
After introducing different types of graphics and typography the group got to work on the question/s they wanted to ask. They all naturally began by drawing what their interests were and the question they wanted to ask their Irish friends came later in text form.
Due to the age range from 3 to 11 the questions varied from ‘Do you have Jellyfish in Ireland’, ‘Do you like swimming?’, ‘Do you like rain?’ and ‘Do you like monsters?’
Looking forward to the next session seeing what our friends have to say.
The home schoolers in Geelong, Australia are making and sharing with the homeschoolers in Derreen, Ireland.
