The children have been intrigued by a current Art activity recently presented to them having to do with our geography lessons . We have been learning and discussing the Earth and began our study with the Montessori Land and Water Globe. I saw this idea on Pinterest and knew I had to try it in my class. As with most Art lessons, I demonstrated the sequence of steps at circle time and then placed the necessary materials on the shelf for the children to complete independently.
|Basket of coffee filters, tray with spray bottle filled with water, jar with green and blue marker with pencil for writing name, and small cloth.|
|The child brings the materials to the workspace and colors land and water for their Earth.|
|Lastly, they use the sprayer to spray three times onto the coffee filter. I was very careful to demonstrate the correct amount of sprays and the kids are following through wonderfully - so far, no stray spraying...! :)|
