My busy little scarecrows using our new tweezers to remove the crows from the corn!

This week we are learning about castles. Yesterday we discussed the different characteristics of castles such as towers, drawbridge, moats.... I filled the sensory table with (dry) sand and placed a basket of sand castle molds, shovels and buckets next to it. It didn't take long for them to discover that the dry sand would not work. This led to a group discussion on what we should do. One student suggested that we add water to the sand to make it stronger! I love watching them figure things out on their own!!
