Sand Castles

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!!
