During a group meeting, we were reading a book about a car. The children noticed that the car was parked in front of a garage door. This sparked their interest due to our ongoing project about doors. The children wondered...how do garage doors open? The children had several theories as to how they thought we could open a garage door. Most of the theories involved pushing or pulling the door. To research the answer to this question, a field trip to Ms. Laura’s house was planned for the next day. At Ms. Laura’s house the children were encouraged to try out their theories, when this did not work Ms. Laura showed them a “remote control”. The children were very excited to push the button to open the door and then once inside the garage to close the door again!
