Last week the children showed a keen interest in making their smoothies so today we explored fruit slices in the water.
The children helped to slice up the fruit learning how to use the knife safely. Once we started cutting into the fruit the children noticed how the fruit smelled.
“The orange smells fruity and sweet can we eat it”
“The lemon smells fresh”
“This lime smells sour”
We squeezed some of the fruit into the bowl.
The children had great fun squeezing, pouring, filling and creating their own fruit juice and also exploring volume and capacity at the same time.
“I am going to make orange juice for everyone”
“I’ve made some orange juice”
“Mine smells yummy”
