Children from rooms 2 and 3 at the Thompson building were presented with a variety of materials and asked the open-ended question, “what can we create?”. The initial provocation included cardboard, scissors, markers, and a special adhesive we like to call ‘sticky gum tape’. As the children worked, and their ideas developed, they were asked if they thought they needed additional materials to bring their visions to life. As needed, the children were able to pull additional materials… making for marvelous individual (and shared) work!!!
August: I’m making a robot puppet!
Makayla: I want to finish my kite. Can we use some string?
Zyaire: I’m making stairs like in my house.
