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!!
