It has been a long time since we worked on our water investigation. We gathered a water sample from the Koi Pond at Georgetown University before our Thanksgiving break. At lunch, we made predictions about the water from the Koi Pond. Hadley firmly believed that it would be the dirtiest water we have collected so far. Max thought we might see mud when we checked it out under the microscope.
The children were not disappointed. We found plenty of impurities in this sample.
Carl - It looks like sand.
Hadley - There's a stick.
Rose - There's little balls of dirt.
In another area of the room, children drew enlarged versions of the microorganisms found in the canal water using the overhead projector. These images will be further represented using the languages of paint and clay in the coming days and weeks.
Children also spent time sewing and coloring mandalas. Everyone was happy to start the day outside in the beautiful sunshine. How long can this wonderful weather last?
