Our toddlers are busy exploring the world through their senses, and enjoy touching and exploring a variety of materials with their hands. The teachers gave the children cornstarch, water and liquid color to make oobleck. The children mix the ingredients together and use tools to fill,measure and dump the oobleck.
The children are using playdough with shells , combining natural materials into their exploration. The children also use the materials as a prop to extend their dramatic play, cooking with sand.
All of these experiences support children’s language, social. motor development.
