Preschool were excited at their discovery this morning
This morning one of the children found a pump. They examined it and asked what it was, then we gave the children some Pom Poms to explore with the pump. They enjoyed using the air pump to blow the pom poms around in different directions and using different amounts of force. We talked about what was happening and one of the children said ‘The air is blowing it like a hot breeze of wind’!
We had so much fun investigating and we can’t wait to extend the children’s thinking by adding some more resources to explore weight.
