Research by the river

Bees became professional scientists these days. One windy day they went for the walk outside with the main aim to find water in the closest area. While walk they have found a river, because teacher could not see it very well – they pointed to the sign with its name – Bytomka. “Oh, our teachers know nothing” – Maks stated… 😉

 

Indeed, we have a small river nearby! Its` name, Bytomka, has the beginning in Bytom, neighbour city, as well as its source. Tens of years ago Bytomka was very polluted, because of industry – coal mines, iron and steel works, metalworks etc. From past twenty years people tried to improve its quality, and it is much better now.

Nowadyas we can see animals close to the river, but no fish. Even these days some people throw rubbish into the river or close to the river bank! Bees were searching both for animals and rubbish…

Children wanted to touch the water of Bytomka, but it was too dangerous to come too close. Teacher Ania took some water into the bucket. Then, children discussed its quality and cleanness. They put water into the bottle for future experiments.

Then – Bees continued their walk by the river. They noticed a sign saying that ‘Throwing rubbish is not allowed”, a bridge to go back, a swan (swimming on the grass instead of water) and fire plug!

Excursion to a natural waterfall

We walked from our school to the beautiful waterfall in Préjano… What a nice walk!! We wanted to discover the natural path of a river and observe first hand a beautiful fall of water.

We could read a lot of information from a big board but one of our collegues’ father explained how water follows its own course and the effects it has. We could see how water dissapears in the underground course and then appears again a little bit further and so many more things! Thank you for your collaboration!

Where is the water?

Homework task in the kindergarten? No worries, “Dwarfs” like discovering the world with their parents at home!

Children were asked to find the picture of water in the books, internet, newspapers, etc. with the help of their parents, at home. Parents have sent us pictures of kids discoveries…

If only it was possible – children printed the picture out or cut it, and bring to the kindergarten. In the small groups “Dwarfs” talked about places where the water is.

PELKA – Little drop from Poland

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?
