With a new group dynamic and some children who had not yet had the experience, we followed up from yesterday's provocation of a shadow screen, projector, and photograph of the sky, which Jack and Lochie took not too long ago. The intention was to spark the children's interest and memories to reignite their imaginations about the earlier conversations we have been having about what we see in the sky e.g. leaves, clouds, planes, and animals.
Similar to the experience of looking into the mirror, placed on the front lawn last week, and the phenomenon of reflection, the novelty and interactive phenomenon of light and shadow captivated the children. The reflective conversation about the sky photograph and the animals in the sky was put on pause. Also, Blake Hall was just too bright today for effective to see the projection of the tree and sky.
At dismissal, we asked: What animals did you see in the sky?
