Fall

Learn to play. Play to learn. Learn to Lead.

We continue to be excited about Young Kidizens as a perfect beginning to the Kidizens program.  Our unique constructivist framework of city-building, role-playing and social learning enables groups of younger students to take on a guided discovery of real-life concepts.  While the overall concept and experiential learning philosophy of Kidizens runs through all problems, our curriculum for the “Young Kidizens,” is designed specifically for the target age group of 6-7 (and young 8′s), with the goal of simplifying many civic and economic concepts and bringing them to life with many play-based elements.

During the fall semester the Young Kidizens will build an entire city while playing with and having fun with LEGOs. The ‘YK’ will build houses, a farm, a police station, a fire station, a hospital, a library and an airport.  Each week they will also study “real-life” versions of each building before beginning their own LEGO versions.  They will find out just what a “day in the life” of a fire fighter, police officer or doctor entails through various events and interactions with their city.  They will also plan out roads and streets in their city as well as studying the history of automobiles and then building LEGO cars themselves.

Toward the end of the semester, each Young kidizen will also decide on a business to build and manage in town.  The YK will have to plan out their business, hire employees, design advertisements and set prices.  It’s going to be a big responsibility on the little shoulders!

In addition, the Young kidizens will also meet and role play as a City Council to discuss issues in their city and find solutions.  Elections will also be held for Mayor, Vice Mayor, and the City Planner of the city as well as many other important government jobs in the city.

In all, the kids will explore, build, have fun, and interact in a socially rich environment, without even realizing that they are continually learning the everyday important lessons of life.
