FSD | Orange Squeezing Activity
Squeezing an orange is a simple food preparation activity. It helps children to develop independence and it is also a practical life learning to boost self-esteem. Our Junior Montessori students were excited to wash, squeeze and pour the yummy juice before they got busy in cleaning-up. This activity was helpful in teaching students the importance of drinking fresh juice. They were delighted at the sight, smell, touch and taste of the fresh citrus. We take this activity as a chance to share the beautiful Hadith, where the Prophet (S.A.W) is reported to have said:
“The example of a believer, who recites the Qur’an and acts on it, is like an orange (utrujah) which tastes nice and smells nice…” [Sahih Bukhari].
