All the time I play, minding anyway!
September 22 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Within the framework of the EMD 2017, IMERYS Greece SA, Milos Operations, will organize an activity focused on safe behavior and self-protection from childhood. An entertaining happening for children from the first grades of primary school of the island of Milos will be hosted in the premises of Imerys Plant Nursery.
Based on the well-known fable “Cricket and Ant” by the ancient Greek author Aesop, the children are taught the importance of observing safety rules and regulations. After constructing a maraca-like instrument and little green and black hats to transform them into crickets and ants respectively, the kids form groups to take part in coordination and teambuilding games.
The happening begins with a play, where the cricket is trying to protect the careless ant from its own carelessness. Pleasant and extremely funny happenings lead to the ultimate clash between the two heroes, finally asking the kids to help them out. The two heroes present their respective arguments in a very “playful” manner, and the children vote with the help of the sound of their maracas. After the vote, the action continues with other games related to the use of safety features like helmets and kneepads as well as tidying up their props, working with safety, and topics related to minerals, mining, and the flora of Milos island. The action ends with a light buffet and a musical-kinetic song performed by the kids and educators.
