Just Let Me Play
Our sunflower inquiry is always thriving to expand. Before and after planting our various seeds, our students became interested in soil. Not knowing where the students wanted to take this inquiry, behold... it rained one morning. As the students were dropped off, they could hear Ms. Deluca telling them to "watch their step"... not because they could trip... but they could step on all the dozens of worms in the kinder area!
Look at how our inquiry evolves in a quick 5 minutes upon morning entry!
student: grose worms
Ms. D : wow, why are they are?
student a: because they needed a drink
student b: no, because they wanted air
student c: because they like rain
Ms. D: rain? why do they like rain?
student c: because every time it rains worms come, I think it is because it is their favourite weather
Ms. D: We should collect some worms in our insect container
(collecting 4 worms)
student c: we need to feed them!
Ms. D: What do we feed them? Our frog food?
student d: Worms like eating dirt, I mean soil...
