This week has marked the beginning of an in-depth look into materials, what strategies the children use to make sense of the materials and how the materials are transformed through the children’s play. It feels like very exciting work and the children are all really into it. The photo above is the result of one child’s (2yrs old) exploration into a grouping of silver/metallic objects. I especially like how the bolt is placed through the hole in the key. What once was two distinct objects have now been merged.
