The exploration of light.
On Tuesday morning I set out an overhead projector with four light paddles before the children arrived to school. I was seeing what kind of invitation to learning it would be for them. Upon entry many children headed right to it to experiment with this concept. They moved the light paddles around and then put them in the top where the color would change on the wall.
I then noticed they were taking the colored translucent tiles and placing them on the projector and making designs and patterns with them.
After morning meeting, I turned on the projector again and the children would place a sensory bag full of glitter and hair gel to cover up the tiles.
There was minimal conversation occurring during this experience, they were quietly experimenting and laughing while they worked on this concept. We will continue to use the projector to see if this concept evolves.
