08.05.14 : Den Building Day
The outcome of the children's hardwork. Their very own DenCity. They build the walls, roof and base out of cardboard materials. They also provide a proper entrance, window openings and a TV set for their den. It was very interestin to witness the children's capabilities in building the den out of materials which need alterings in order for it to work best. The outcomes of all four dens were beyond our imagination. I personally was really impressed.

Brandon and his two friends were playing around once the den was finished.They created their own pillow from cardboards and play pretend to be asleep. It's amazing how children were acting so spontaneously in their den.

08.05.14 : Den Building Day
Each children had their own task/scope of work as discussed with their group. They explore ways to construct from the base towards covering the spaces inside their den. They took their assigned responsibilities really well and were very satisfied with the outcome at the end. The children even highlighted about achieving the aim of having all seven of them to fit inside the den in order to protect themselves from the alien attack.

The children (in groups) discussed on how they would build their den, with the guidance from the Den Helpers and our Collaborators as well. They learn about give and take situations and the importance of teamwork.

Impressed by the children's self directed capabilities. They moved on from drawing out their imaginations / interpretations of their dens from paper to actual concrete floors without being told.
