About the lesson plans
Huippu Education's lesson plans are based on a holistic approach to learning.
As well, the plans follow theme-based learning. A lesson or activity is always conducted together with the children.
The lesson plans aim to engage the children and to connect the topic to children's real-life experiences. We want to encourage exploring and investigating, and use a variety of learning methods simultaneously. We also make sure we apply what has been learned, discussed, or played with the topic we are exploring.
