How Deep is the Creek?
Lots of rain and snow melt filled up our creeks and ephemeral pond. We got out some yardsticks and rulers to measure how deep the water was.
"The water is all going the same way."
"The water from behind is pushing the water forward."
"The water is following the rocks."
We also experimented with long paintbrushes, allowing us to paint up in high places.
Everyone enjoyed using funnels and pvc pipe to conduct their own water experiments.
There has been a lot of excitement around dictated stories. The kids have been telling stories about dinosaurs, wonder woman, and their friends at Fairywood. We write down their words into journals and read the stories aloud around the fire circle.
