Introduction

All the activities proposed in this Scratch Jr. Tactile didactic unit are born from the magic of the story The Planet of Fire written by Martí Olivella. A book full of reality and metaphors that, although it seems to be written for children, makes both the youngest and the oldest reflect.
Reading The Planet of Fire makes us reflect, challenges us and invites us to question ourselves in depth.


The union of conscious reading, the inclusive approach, computational thinking and the SDGs (UN Sustainable Development Goals) that Scratch Jr. Tactile proposes, is a multidisciplinary proposal that can be easily incorporated into the educational practice of schools, institutes and other environments and that is aligned with the vectors proposed in the new educational curriculum.
This proposal will allow students not only to develop the academic skills necessary to move in today's world, but will also help generate a culture of peace, solidarity, empathy and respect for others and the environment.

Introduction

All the activities proposed in this teaching unit of Scratch Jr Tactile are born from the magic of the story The Planet of Fire written by Martí Olivella. A book full of reality and metaphors that, although it seems to be written for children, makes both the youngest and the oldest think.

Reading The Planet of Fire makes us reflect, challenges us, and invites us to deeply question ourselves.

The union of conscious reading, the inclusive approach, computational thinking and the SDG (Sustainable Development Goals of the UN) that is proposed with Scratch Jr Tactile, is a multidisciplinary proposal that can be easily incorporated into the educational practice of schools, institutes, and other environments and which aligns with the vectors proposed in the new educational curriculum.

This proposal will allow students not only to develop the academic skills necessary to move in today's world but will also help to generate a culture of peace, solidarity, empathy, and respect for others and the environment.

Teaching unit 1:
The Red Planet

Objectives


With this unit, numerous topics of debate are intreduced that will allow students to reflect on the consequences that burning the forests would bring to people, animals, and the planet, also the benefits of the terrestrial ecosystem, and the importance of keeping the forests alive and healthy.

On the other hand, the first concepts of computational thinking are introduced, such as algorithms, patterns, sequence, etc. And creativity is encouraged by proposing the use of recyclable material in the activities.

Recommended ages: from 4 years old

Approx time: 90 - 120 min
