World Project: Intergenerational Dialogues

OMEP Kenya has signed up to contribute to a World OMEP project this year and they will be encouraging teachers to develop preschool activities that involve the children talking with their grandparents and village elders about:

Where does our food come from?

How has this changed in recent years?

Teachers will be inviting the children’s grandparents into the classroom to tell the children about how their families grew food at home when they were children.

What things were grown? How has this changed?

How do you start a garden, what tools and resources are needed?

We hope that some preschools will be able to develop garden projects where grandparents help the children grow some of their own food. UK partner preschools are also being encouraged to join in and the project has a lot of the potential to to make comparisons between the two communities. The children in Kenya and the UK will also learn about Wangari Maathai.
