We made a mud kitchen area at the rock circles to explore mixing different items. The children had a great time experimenting with making runny solution, thick solutions, adding hard objects like rock and bark or adding soft objects like leaves, flowers and grass to see what happened to the mixtures.
Children also used their natural collection to create a water city with a catapult. They worked together to engineer a town where the water could flow and the water filters could be catapulted to buildings so they could keep using the water in that building. A snail home was also built for a snail that was found by children.
All children showed great cooperation, problem solving, communcation and creativity throughout all the learning experiences during our Outdoor Classroom Day!
