Area of Development: Approaches to Learning3. Standard Address: Imagination, Creativity, and InventionThis aspect includes originality, playfulness and having multiple interests. (page 15) Take on pretend roles in play and make-believe with objects.4. Materials: Two (2) inflated balloons with string attached Your hair Aluminum can Woolen fabric Three full body mirrors5. Procedures: The teacher will ensure the two inflated balloons with stringsare attached ahead of time for three (3) preschoolerchild and three (3) pieces of woolen fabric. Instruct the children to rub the balloons oneby one against the woolen fabric, they try moving the balloons together.Instruct the children to rub one (1) or the balloons back and forth on their hair then slowlypull it away from their hair.
