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!

Water – let`s find it!

The Dwarfs received next task from Pelka the Drop. They had to find water in the kindergarten and its` surroundings.

The youngest preschoolers found water in the bathroom and in the hall very fast.

 

Unfortunately, when children went outside they realized that it isn’t so easy. The weather was sunny and there wasn’t any puddle in the nearby. The Dwarfs were looking for it everywhere (even in the shop!) and finally they found it!

 

It emerged that the water was hiding in the drains, in the watering can, bottles, in the sandpit and in the pot.

Hurray! Let`s go further next time!

The water in Iceland

The children in Lundur (3-4 years old) were talking about the water and where it comes from. We made mindmap together. The children said that we needed water so we do not get thirsty. The water comes from a well, from the ocean, from fire, from big water tank and from the sink.

The children went on a field trip to see if we could find any water.

Now we need to find out where the water comes from…
