They started their project by asking the question: What can water do? They then began by establishing opportunities for the children to discover all the mysteries of water! Making bubbles and play dough led the toddlers to discover that water can make things! Exploring icicles, painting snow, and painting ice balls led them to discover that water can melt. Giving our baby dolls baths and washing our cars has helped them to learn that water can be used to clean. A baking soda, water, and vinegar experiment also taught them that water can be powerful and can make things happen! The light table and pre-made water bags helped the children to understand that water can move. Observing water beads taught them that water can be absorbed!
There is an endless amount of concepts to learn about water and our toddlers are just beginning. Ms. Destanie and Ms. Julie have been busy observing and talking with the toddlers about their findings. Their growing understanding and vocabulary surrounding water is astounding to watch!
Next they will begin exploring that water can support life, Let the fun and learning continue!
