The Ugly Duckling
Today we started a new unit called ” On the Pond .” I didn’t realize I had so many materials for this unit. Our day was busy ! The children had a buzz all morning as they explored all the different materials .
The fish are for counting . We put some in our makeshift pond. The kids were using fishing poles to ” fish ” but couldn’t pick them up. We put metal tacks on the end and now they can. It was a great little unexpected science lesson in the middle of the day.
Another choice of bright squishy frogs to sort and manipulate .
Blue rocks on a silver platter. The turtle next to the platter has a dice inside. The children roll the dice to determine how many blue ( water ) rocks they should remove from the pond.
Chandler found out that his fishing pole would stick to the metal tray .
