Tag Archives: Toddlers make a pond

We made our own pond

We read a story about pond life and the children each chose something that they thought would be in a pond eg grass, sticks, pebbles, dirt fish,frogs and butterflies.

The children then had fun making up their own pond and adding the insects and objects found around the garden. The children were deeply engaged in discovering where frogs could live and what they could hop to in the pond. They learned that frogs start off as tadpoles and fish live underwater. We also learned about floating and sinking as small sticks float, pebbles sink and grass floats.
