Using fine motor skills, focus and concentration to transfer water from the container to the cotton pad
Once we'd used all the cotton pads, we tested the absorbency of the paper towelling
We discovered that it wasn't as absorbent which we decided was due to the thickness
- Use new language and descriptive words like, "absorption" and "transfer." This will help with their language development.
-Ask questions to help connect their understanding and use vocabulary to give them words to describe what they're experiencing, eg. "Why do you think this cotton pad is going blue when you haven't put any blue water on it?" etc.
- If you have coloured water left, why not try making Cloud Jars?
- For more fun, have a look here and here to see what others have done using similar materials
Look where else we are. Are you following along? :)
