Exploring materials with Vehicles
This week in toddler room we used our interest in transport and vehicles then incorporated this into our monthly materials topic. We had different stations within the room that helped us achieve this while also using different skills. We used mobilo to make and construct our own vehicles working on our mathematical and fine motor skills and testing our ideas. In the next station we worked on our hand eye coordination where we used different vehicles to follow lines and shapes along the floor. We then used our creative skills by making marks on paper by attaching pens to different vehicles and running them along and sliding vehicles down guttering in paint to make marks and tracks. We really enjoyed watching what happened especially when the vehicles run down the guttering and testing out which ones would make the longest tracks. Our final station was a large building site with lots of different construction vehicles and materials for us to build and create our own masterpieces. We also used these vehicles to dig and drag soil and sand. Well done toddlers you all did such great exploring and testing your ideas and skills.
