PreK physicists reviewed the various ways objects move and that movement begins with a push or a pull. Then, we pushed and pulled ribbon dancers to make them move both slow and fast and high and low. We made shapes and heard them whip. My youngest scientists worked on large muscle development when they crossed their midlines and changed hands.
After reading Squiggle, we moved to the lab tables and used our imaginations to change our squiggles into something else. This activity made us think divergently which is a thought process used to generate creative ideas by exploring many possible solutions. I love teaching with a cross-curricula approach!
