What do you get when you add sand + water + enthusiastic learners? During the past two weeks the afternoon children have been gravitating towards the sandpit and mostly staying there all afternoon. Working together in groups to create rivers and pools of mud, wonderful to jump, splash and sometimes even swim in. Powerful learning takes place while children work in small groups, ﬁnding out how to work together, problem solving through trial and error, and ﬁnding new and different ways to make things work. You might call this “PLAY”, but for children it is very serious work as they go about their business, exploring the properties of sand and water with their whole body, creating waterways to redirect water and learning how to share spaces with others. Powerful learning indeed.
