Bees discussed water topic some time ago. Mind map about water was rich in knowledge and ideas. Children talked about the meaning and importance of water for humans and nature…
As children stated that we cannot survive without water, they got the idea of having water bar
(restaurant with different types of water in menu).
Here we play water bar with teacher Ania. Besides suplementing water into their bodies, children practiced polite behavior in the restaurant. Bees used such words as” “Can I have…?”, “Please…” or “Thank you”. They could decide which type of water they want to drink and ask for this.

Our friend ‘WATER’ has arrived to Spain and we started working with it… First step, mindmaps in order to check what we alredy know and what else we want to know about it.
Little drop Pelka fell down from clouds today, straight to “Skrzaty” (“Dwarfs”) – the youngest group in the kindergarten.
She gave children few tasks to perform. The first task was about finding Pelka`s picture.
The next step of this adventure was to copy Pelka`s shape with the use of different materials: feathers, bricks, pompoms, creative materials and even children.
Little drop Pelka became an inspiration for kids` sharing with what they already know about water… And of course the question: What we would like to know about water?

Last days the group of 5-6 year-olds called “Zuchy” started their discovery in a topic of WATER. They made a brainstorming session about the water itself, places where we can find it and its purpose.
That was indeed quite “stormy” brainstorming session;) In one of kids` statements it was said that our Planet Earth consists of lots of water, that is why Earth is seen in green and brown colours from Space.
The first thing children wanted to do within this water project (which is the FIRST eTwinning project in this group) was… Planet Earth! Children used salt, flour and water (exactly the same amount of each substance), added some food pigments, made a paste of that and painted a paper shape of Earth. Then, they put their work into microwave to get… amazing shapes and texture.
