Pond Life

The children went to the forest for a pond dipping activity. 

They used nets to dip into the pond to look for pond life. 

When they pulled out the net they emptied the findings into buckets to inspect. 

The buckets were emptied and the process repeated looking for various types of pond life. 

The children were able to take risks by taking steps into the water. 

They talked about the water depth and temperature. 

The children talked about how much water they collected in their buckets. 

Exploring weight and capacity and introducing mathematical language.
