What can you balance? Exploring Mass!

Sarama and Clements stress that “the importance of well-planned, free-choice play, appropriate to the ages of the children, should not be underestimated.

The only instruction was a sign that read "What can you balance?" I stepped back and watched as the students immediately engaged with excitement…

That's what one of my boys, I'll call him "Stewart", did today. It got me thinking about good block play, the kind where students really ARE thinking critically. Stewart tried five or six ways before he got…

Invitation to Explore

A few weeks ago, before we entered our 'unschooling' season, the science book that we were loosely following had some experiments involving light that I thought the boys would enjoy, so I ordered a couple of bits of equipment, namely some mirrored tiles and a prism. As our last vestiges of structure disappeared, the tiles and prism also disappeared into the science box, for future use. I wasn't bothered by not using the equipment immediately - I knew from experience that it would be used…
