Nelson Mandela

Let’s Celebrate Nelson Mandela & his Birthday! 

Thursday, July 18

We’re all friends at Pretend City! Gather together as we celebrate the birthdate of a strong world leader, Nelson Mandela. Families will learn about his efforts to promote equality and respect. Today, we will learn through stories, art, and practice social-emotional learning.

Purpose Behind the Play:  Social-emotional development, literacy and language development

Smart Art: South African Flags > The South African flag is recognized as a “symbol of unity and progress” due to the heroic leadership of Mr. Mandela. Let’s come together to work on community projects in recreating his country’s flag.
Holiday History (11:30a): The Orange County Heritage Council will be joining us to lead an interactive activity that highlights Nelson Mandela’s accomplishments. We will also learn about his amazing impact on the world.
Cultural Connection (3:00p): All Are Welcome > Equality and peace are two core values that Nelson Mandela stood for. We’ll honor these characteristics by reading a fantastic book highlighting the beauty of diversity and then share how we can respect all of our friends as we practice our pro-social skills.
