The children were exploring different textures in the water tray today. We had some gooey red jelly and bicarbonate of soda fizzy ice as well as some fluffy frozen shaving foam.
The children loved feeling the different textures. They were able to use great descriptive words. They could see the bicarbonate ‘bubble’ when it came in contact with the jelly. The ice was SO cold and the shaving foam was like ‘snow’. Then one child said “it’s a big iceberg!” We all watched the iceberg float around our jelly sea before it slowly melted.
