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.

Water Adventure Lesson with parents (PL)

These days Polish group of Bees had a Water Adventure lesson, which was the last “Learning Community” day within our last eTwinning project “Bunch of eGrapes”. Because it is all about water, we decided to share it with you here, in Erasmus Water Cycle space…

While this learning opoortunity Bees were playing with various water tasks, together with five parents and special job shadowing guest – Alina Wujcik, an eTwinning ambassador from Łódź, Poland. As previously did, children formed six groups and went for team adventures, supported by a Little Drop of water they met for the first time.


There was a special place children could taste the water. Bees had five different tastes of water to recognize – still water, plain water with lemon flavour, apple flavour, strawberry flavour or raspberry one. Bees also clarified their favourite taste. They shared with first opinion about the healthiest type of water – which topic is going to be widely discussed later on.

Water card we used in this task: TASTE OF WATER


Children made an experiment with a collection of items to check how they behave when put into the water. Bees used a special observation card to mark the result of observation.

An observation card to download: SINK OR NOT


This activity was the great opportunity for stimulation and creativity. Children were trying to discover sounds of instruments which could match with various situations connected with water, like sounds of: river, fountain, waterfall,  raining, storm, sea sound of waves, sink etc.


So cool to paint on the wall.. Bees could feel like real artists, using blue paint to make an art work while listening to the music in the background…


This station consisted on two different task in the matter of comparing size and volume.
First, children tried to make an order from the biggest water drop to the smallest or just the other way about.  File with water drop to compare: DIFFERENT WATER SIZE

Then, Bees played with water to fill containers with a “small” amount, “medium” and “big” amount of water. They also used written words and drawings to join the amount with the meaning of words.


The last station was giving children the opportunity to calculate the amount of water needed to fill the container. Bees used pbs game called “Bubble bath” (http://pbskids.org/peg/games/bubble-bath). They did some counting and had a lot of fun, especially when they chose too much containers to fill the bath of Peg and Cat…

Finally, there came the time to find the treasure of the adventure. of course, it was the WATER. Meantime Bees made a coding task to meet the name of Little Drop who is PELKA, the mascot which will be playing with us in this eTwinning project.
