“There is nothing more beautiful than laughter” Frida Kahlo (LS-ES-623)
Context for the Implementation
This learning scenario has been designed by Leticia Gil, a member of the Spanish Europeana User Group. It is intended for a heterogeneous group of early childhood students (5-6 years old) with different levels of learning.
In this LS we will work with all subjects in the Pre-Primary period in a global way considering the three areas:
- Self-knowledge and personal autonomy.
- Knowledge and interaction with the environment.
- Languages: communication and representation.
Frida Kahlo will help us to approach Art. This LS is focused on the figure of Frida Kahlo and her works of Art. We will also link it with the care and control of emotions. We will try to bring the life of a woman, Frida Kahlo, who has been a reference to Mexican painting and the world of art. Her paintings are the reflection of fears, emotions, and frustration, but also wishes, happiness and love. We will try to approach to cultural, historical, musical and of course, artistic topics, to get closer to a character that was meaningful and significant in our time and culture, a character from which children and girls can profit enormously, taking into account tolerance, equality and diversity.
This LS is developed within a constructivist and meaningful learning frame. Going from the small and scaling up in a thoughtful and intentional way, with the purpose of making the students be the creators of their own knowledge, therefore not only passive agents.
On Europeana resources
We had the opportunity to improve our teaching and learning process through the following Europeana Resources:
Whenever we start a project, we display different images on the digital screen in our classroom. Through them, we carry out different brainstorming. The first images of Frida obtained from Europeana helped us to take into account her previous knowledge and to know what her interests were.
In turn, throughout the weeks, we use different resources such as the computer corner to teach our children to use the Europeana page and to be able to search for other resources.
During our meetings with families, we introduce them to Europeana so that they can also search for information with the children from home and thus complement their learning.
