Our class has started talking about rocks.
Where do rocks come from?
Why do they all look so different?
What are they made out of?
We set out a variety of rocks for the children to explore.
They made beautiful rock totems.
The word "balance" came up a lot.
We also talked about the words "more", "less" and "order".
The children had some great conversations during this activity.
Scarlett: I need a steady rock.
Erin: What does "steady" mean?
Scarlett: The rocks are staying still.
Titus: They can be up for a very long time.
The children really enjoyed the challenge of seeing how many rocks they could stack.
The record holds at 12.
