The lesson is interdisciplinary for Language and Art: students listen to the fairytale, analyze it and as a creative activity they make their own puppets. They also learn about stereographs, make their own examples, and look through Europeana collection for a stereograph photo that will inspire them to write a short story. In the end, a class exhibition will be organized. For Math, they are counting the characters and make patterns.
In the national curriculum for the first grade, students should read ten books. Little Red Riding Hood is one of the recommendations. After reading, various creative teaching activities are designed and implemented. The activities are designed according to the characteristics of the literary work for children, its content and the educational outcomes.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage (Rerun)” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
