Noticing and Collaborating

Posted by on April 2, 2014

This afternoon we focused on stretching our noticing muscles, we collected interesting items and put them together on a tarpaulin. Then in groups we took turns to be blindfolded and feel one of the items. We had to see if we could pick the item out from the group when we took our blindfold off. It was really good listening to how some of the children explained how they came to their decisions, especially when there were similar items on the ground.

After this we collaborated to work out how to turn over our iceberg without falling into the sea. We found out that communication and talking to each other was really important in being able to do this task together.

For our next activity we really had to collaborate, it was really important to make sure we were communicating with each other, to make sure we kept each other safe. This game helped us to stretch our noticing muscles and our collaboration muscles. We were blindfolded, and two friends guided us to find a tree. Once we had taken our blindfold off we had to see if we could find the tree that our friends had led us to. How did it feel when you couldn’t see and had to trust your friends to keep you safe? Was it difficult being a guide?
