Grade 2

Come, let’s play

Module 3

The park

Make a sketch of what you think the park will look like.

  • Draw plants and trees as well.
  • Indicate where the entrance will be.
  • Remember that disabled learners must also be able to gain access to the park.
  • You have thought carefully about the layout of the park, and you have planned it well. Now you must decide together with the rest of the class what you are going to need for the park.
  • Is there anything in the list that you would not like to have in the park?
  • Look at the apparatus in each box below and mark those things you would like to have in the park.
  • Write a letter to Mr Moneybags to thank him for the kind thought. Tell him how excited you are and explain what you would like to have in the park.

Model building:

  • Discuss the model with your classmates and decide which apparatus each person will be responsible for. Knead the clay until it is nice and soft and then all of you can help to build the model.
  • Write your classmates’ names next to the apparatus that they are going to make.
  • Invite Mr Moneybags to attend your exhibition of the models. He will probably be very curious to see what you are planning to do.
  • Make a sketch to show what your model looks like:
  • Draw a picture of yourself and Mr Moneybags.
  • Ask your mother or father to help you to find out at which shop or business you will be able to buy the different products.
  • Tell the rest of the class which are the best shops to buy the products from.
  • Draw a shop. Give the shop a name.
