Water + Oil + Salt + Freedom = Scientific Discovery!

D is for Discovery in preschool!

Have you seen Deborah's Teach Preschool blog? If not, go check it out! She's celebrating 20,000 followers on Facebook this week so she must be something, eh?


We offered the children a "Make your own ocean" station:

Each station included:
1 empty ball jar
1 small container of salt
1 small baby food jar halfway full of oil
2 droppers
2 plastic spoons
1 paint cup with a 2ish tablespoons of liquid water color

Some children asked, "What are we supposed to do?" My response was, "What would you like to do with it?" I love how each child approached their station differently.

Space to Feel

Children's responses to "would you like to share your feelings today?" This list of feelings emerged in our circle time...
