So happy to explore with you in our 4th adventure – Magnets.
The Magnet-Opus food tray was the highlight of the Cube game of Magnets. We also imagined our hand is a special magnet that attracts Reds and Rectangles. The kids explored our room to discover Metals and realized there are things that look like Metals but are not attracted to magnets. Some photos:
In the mice and Chili adventure – Chili had a giant magnet. We helped the mice escape with wonderful ideas from the kids.
In the exploration stations we collaborated to create a pond.
We colored fish.
The kids exercised their eye-hand coordination while drawing the pond’s water, algae and corals with magnets.
Created a Magnet-Opus and discovered his favorites from a tray full of Magnet-Opus food.
The kids loved to see the pond come together so beautifully and use magnetic poles to fish in the pond they created.
First it was just a cardboard box.
but than it started to fill with water and corals and fish
and Magnet-Opuses and food for them.
and the kids got fishing poles and started filling the bucket with fish and Magnet-Opus food.
We even had a jumping frog that uses the fact that like magnetic poles repel each other.
See you all next time for Combining shapes adventure.
