Objects and Materials Inquiry
Last week we started a new inquiry on objects and materials. We started by getting time to explore different materials and objects Mrs. van Rees put around the room. We asked lots of questions and enjoyed playing with the objects. They all felt different and smelled different too. Some were hard, some were soft. Then we looked at a book about materials and most of the class was interested in metal or wood. Today we did some research about wood and metal. We wrote down some important facts about the materials and asked lots of questions too. We started thinking of lots of objects made from these 2 materials. I think we're going to make lists of all the things we know later this week. Keep posted to see all the learning we're doing with 'objects and materials'.
