Last week the children found artifacts in Austin’s garden. The children identified seashells, rocks, wishing rocks, crystals, leaves, glass and “teeth”. We are working towards the children identifying their findings and developing a system to catalog or organize them. The process started with cleaning the artifacts in a tub with some brushes. The children began to notice differences between the materials. Kian began testing different objects to see if they would float with Rowan. While Leigh and Margaret were focused on cleaning off the dirt. Cleaning the pieces one by one allowed the children time to hold and take a closer look before we start organizing the artifacts.
