8 year old girl: Then Adam was bored, so God created Eve.
This happened after a number of sessions exploring the story of Prophet Adam and Lady Eve with primary school aged children. The children engaged in retelling the story using different means including paper puppets and our tiny theatre set up.

Children come to the learning space with their own set of understandings, biases and misconceptuons. Pre-existing misconceptions take a long time to identify and correct. The child herself needs to be the one in the driving seat to discover and correct these misconceptions. The role of the educator is to provide a mirror in which the child can reflect on her belief; and a window through which she can see a reasoned alternative. They also need wisdom, support and unlimited quantity of patience. .
