Communicating our knowledge

Showing where litter  goes.

Making the poster

A proud group!

Today the Fire Group made 2 posters about storm drains and the importance of keeping them clean. The children wanted to share their knowledge so they made a presentation to each of the other groups.  Some of the important information the Fire Group shared:
Julia and Simone: Please keep the storm drains neat and tidy so the garbage doesn't go into the creeks. Bela added that there are "drains on the playground."
Grace is concerned about the beavers in the creek so she asked the children to keep garbage away from the drains because "it will hurt the beavers". 
Roy told the children "Not to drink the water." 
Alfie added that if we litter "the water won't come out (into the creek) if the drain plugs." 

The children were incredibly confident when they approached each group. They are "storm drain experts" and want to clean the playground today.  Hopefully the rain will slow down.

Verdi: Catapults

Verdi, a young python, does not want to change.  The last thing he wants his to turn from his beautiful yellow to boring green. Verdi tries to change his colour back to yellow by scrubbing his skin and then covering it with mud. Nothing works.  He notices that the sky is bright yellow just like he used to be. Verdi launches himself from the treetops certain that his flight will change him back to yellow.

How did Verdi fly through the air? What a great opportunity to learn about catapults. Elastics and popsicle sticks were the only materials need to build a catapult.  First the children, used plastic snakes to sail through the area.  It was delightful to hear the excitement and the laughter as the children made  their "Verdi" fly.

I asked the children which would travel farther; a plastic snake or a pompom.  Most of the children though the heavier item, the snake, would travel a further distance.  The children were amazed at how far and how high a pompom could move.
