Rockin’ Rocks: Salt and Fresh Water
Water is amazing! It can be a solid, liquid and gas and both fresh and salty. In this hands-on workshop, we will explore the properties of both fresh and salt water and how this connects to density. We will also investigate ways to explore rocks and other natural objects with young children, and how these activities connect to investigating the natural world, developing a sense of wonder for natural environments through active exploration, thinking and reasoning; using our bodies and senses to build, create and design in various ways utilising different materials and techniques, to identify and try possible solutions to problems in meaningful contexts and situations. The aim is to express a zest for living and lifelong learning.
