Something our preschool children love to do is solve
problems! It is such a wonderful interest to have because it creates great
opportunities for critical thinking, problem solving and team work! On our
playground was a strange looking item… the children were kicking it around and
asking ‘What is this? What is it?’ So we began to investigate! What did we
“A bottle. Because it has a lid on it” – A points to the tip
“Sand” – W – “We need to crack it”
What do you see??
“A lid, made out of brick? – J
“Rocks from the playground” – S
We spent time to explore and discuss what we see and think about the object. The children have some interesting theories… but we still haven’t figured out what it is and where it come from!
