Spades Cause a Flurry of Activity

Prob solv one s

Our new spades caused a flurry of activity in the sandpit. Children discovered they were useful for heaping, patting, smoothing, digging tunnels and making roads. In a small space, six children worked co-cooperatively on one project.

Problem solving was needed to complete the design for a tunnel entrance. The rock was not stable so it was planted more firmly in the sand. Then it was in the wrong position to be able to make a bridge with a twig. So the correct distance was estimated. Plastering sand around the twigs was also a challenge that was successfully managed. This is active learning.
