Exploring Puddles

Posted on: December 17th, 2014 by lmaclean No Comments



On our nature walk this morning, we discovered many puddles on the pathway.  Children noticed that the rain was making “splashing rings” or drops into the puddles.  We stood back to observe the raindrops on the puddles.  Then slowly walked towards the puddles.  Some students noticed that it was harder to see the raindrops when they were standing right above the puddle.  This led to a discussion about the angle of our eyesight and optical illusions.  Minnie said that “when I look from far away my eyesight is like a small angle and the splashes look bigger.  When I stand right above, the dots become smaller.”
