You will need a blanket, and some empty and accessible wall space (like in a hallway).
➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N
Have two adults (or tall children) hold up the blanket vertically so that it hangs between them like a curtain and touches the ground. Tell children that the blanket represents a wall.
Invite children one at a time to see if they are strong enough to push their way through the “wall” and pass through to the other side.
Now ask the following questions:
1) Was it easy to push this wall out of the way? (yes)
2) Did the wall move when you pushed it? (yes)
3) Was it a weak wall or a strong wall? (weak)
4) Do you think this wall would be very good for protecting something important? (no)
Next, invite children to go with you to the empty wall space that you have chosen for the activity. Invite children to stand next to the wall and try as hard as they can to push the real wall out of the way! Let them attempt this and struggle at it for a minute or so, then ask the children to sit down and discuss the following questions.
