LITTLE TRADIES

An innovative, fun and exciting framework for children

Little Tradies will provide:

Practical activities to help children experience how things work, move and fit together

Practical Activities

Little Tradies is an innovative, fun and exciting framework for children from the ages of 4 to 12 years old. It incorporates practical activities for learning the fundamentals of various trades such as carpentry, plumbing, electrical, landscaping and auto-mechanical – including how environmental sustainability factors influence decision-making.

Practical Activities

Using practical activities, children will show their work and more importantly, do the work, and learn to explain their finished product and processes involved. Using a variety of active learning methodologies, including Project Based Learning (PBL), Experiential Learning, and Learning by Design, Little Tradies kids will learn in a dynamic and experiential way to really challenge their thinking.

Core Tenets

Little Tradies is underpinned by 3 core tenets

Sensorial

Through practical activities children will explore tools, materials and components – including safety measures when using different materials and equipment. Sensorial activities encourage curiosity, experience and experimentation with tactile, visual perception, which includes touch, sound and smell.

Language

Language skills enhances auditory sensorial with their teachers and peers. Listening to instructions of when and how to place materials in their right order. Children aged 6 and above are required to evaluate design solutions using questions, ‘How does it work?, ‘What purpose does it meet?’ or ‘How can it be improved?’

Mathematics

Children explore and utilise the mathematical concepts of measuring, addition, two and three dimensional shapes. Children will be introduced to mathematical concepts relating trades – Example: angles, dimensions, different types of measurement and the importance of accuracy.
