One of our favourite groups during rotations is the Thinking Skills Challenge. We're working on building up the skills we will need in the future such as the ability to solve problems, think creatively and critically, analyse information and share ideas.
We did some brainstorming Using a Venn Diagram to compare people and gorillas and then quickly jotted down our ideas.
We noted these similarities: they live in families, they have a similar body to us, they play with their babies like we do and they eat fruit.
The differences include: all wild gorillas live in a jungle in central Africa, they are mostly vegetarian but we eat meat, fruit and vegetables, they walk on all four limbs but we only have 2 feet and ...they don't have to go to school!
