Marble Art


We dropped a paint covered marble in the middle of a piece of paper in a long, shallow box with a child holding each end of the box. We asked "how can you make the marble move?" With a little bit of team work the pairs of children applied what they had discovered while building ramps on previous days. One child needs to tip the box up while the other tips their end down. 




They also discovered together how they could make the marbles go side to side.




This activity turned out to be as fun as the paintings are beautiful. 
Look for them hanging in our red room.
