Early Years Communicate with an Alien

Using an alien soft toy or puppet encourage children's social development in a class talk. What planet do we live on? Where do you think he comes from? This shall prompt discussion and questions for the children to ask the alien. What is it like where you live? How did you get here? What do you like best about earth? Compare the difference between earth and other planets out in space.

When the alien has left and gone home ask children what have they learnt from him? What do they remember him telling them, and construct answers and put them on a mind map.

Write a letter together as a class to the alien, telling him what we are doing now he has gone, thanking him for his visit and for all the things he has told us about his home and space.
