This week in the Discovery (Walnut) Room, new objects were added to the water table for children to explore. Clips were added to help hold hoses and water spinners allowed the children to see how water can move objects.
"It spins fast!" --Muadh
"I want to play. It's a machine!" --Michael
"You just have to pour it!" --Livy
Working with these tools gives the children opportunities to grow their fine motor skills and other inquiry skills as well. We look forward to adding more tools and activities to the water table as the year goes on!
