Land and Water Forms- Archipelago and System of Lakes
This week the children were introduced to the idea of an archipelago and a system of lakes. They took the land and water forms to a table and were given a lesson on pouring water into the forms. This was very timely as we had students return from Hawaii this week. (Notice the spill of water on the table, this is a great lesson in cleaning up. We have blue cloths that the children use to clean up spills. They can all do this independently now.)
As an extension to this lesson, the children feel the small sandpaper land and water forms and then color a paper to take home.
