I would love to share our Giant Carrot experience with you.
I have written down below how we used The Giant Carrot to teach unity and togetherness as the school year came to an end.
The children in my class listened to "The Giant Carrot" and instantly, every child was taken with the song. We learned the song effortlessly and after our children decided which song would be part of our end of the year performance, they unanimously voted on "The Giant Carrot."!!!
The children understood the subtle message of the song: strength in working as a group and satisfaction in doing so as well.
Our children also decided they wanted to create their own Giant Carrot for the performance and every child got to work. They worked collaboratively on creating a three dimensional carrot. Then, we stuffed the carrot the next day and every child painted his/her name on the carrot.
When we performed, the children took great pride in mastering all of the lyrics! At the grand finale, every child had their hand on the carrot and simulated a pulling motion.
They were so proud as was I!
Thank you again from all of us!
