Today in our outdoor area children were excited to place the tubes into the bars and pour water into them. They watched the water spouting in all different directions. They had great fun filling the tubes and trying to collect the water as it gushed out. They used a variety of containers to fill, pour and collect water. Children practiced filling, transferring and pouring using different sized containers too.
Today we have been buliding a volcano from recycled materials to make a small world for our dinsosaurs. The children discussed what the dinosaurs might like in their world and they decided on a volcano and some plants. We used the promethean board to find out more information on volcanoes and what they look like so we could make our own. We used a plastic bottle and some old newspapers to cover it. Once it is dry we are going to paint it.
Watch out for the finished product!
