We live in a multi-dimensional world, but most traditional education is restricted to two dimensions, either with pen and paper worksheets or on a screen.
Studies have shown that working on children’s spatial thinking skills will in the future support their achievement in math and science.
It is for this reason that we are always engaging in sensory experiences.
These experiences bring abstract concepts to the concrete minds of preschoolers.
As part of our swim week, we talked all about diving.
Because we don’t have a real swimming pool, we decided to create one using one of our water tables.
We filled up this water table with water, watercolors, glitter and shaving cream.
Following this, students were provided with different figures.
In addition to this, they were directed to teach their figures how to “dive” into the pool.
Everyone enjoyed interacting with the glittery water alongside their friends, creating different dives and “swimming” in the pool!
