Handling something fragile

One of the lessons we wanted to give is how to hold something fragile. We have fragile items in the classroom and all children can benefit from being shown how to handle such items. As we have been studying birds and have made our own nests, we decided to bring out one of our real nests and demonstrate how to hold something fragile.
We took the nest out, showed the children how to hold their hands and then transferred the nest to their hands.
Today we used a special bell from India. This gave us a chance to not only hold the bell carefully but to also ring it carefully. The children all wanted a turn and were in fact, very careful.
