ADRA’S fishing museum has a new innovative educational resource aimed at children.
The 11-page storybook entitled ‘Las aventuras de Julita la pirata’ (The adventures of Julia the pirate) provides a way for kids to learn about the museum through games, word searches, crosswords, drawing, riddles and other activities.
The creative teaching booklet was created by Vanessa Fernandez, Elisa Jimenez and Sebastian Perez, all staff at the Iniciativa de Cooperación Local, and the project was launched by the local council’s Tourism department.
Speaking at the presentation of the booklet, Adra Culture councillor Elisa Fernandez thanked the three creators for all the work they put into the project.
She said it would enable children who visit the fishing museum “to carry on learning about the history of our municipality.”
Vanessa Fernandez explained the booklet was aimed at six to 12-year olds to make their visit to the museum more fun.
“When children learn through play it keeps their attention more easily”, she added.
