Natural wonders

15 May 2019


At BestStart Hokowhitu we are exploring natural resources as a learning tool, through this our tamariki are learning to connect with nature and learn how to treat it with respect whilst still having fun and exploring with their senses.

Today we have been outside discovering the difference of wet leaves and dry leaves and how they feel different in our sensory discovery activity. We also added some pine cones and paua shells to this experience so that our tamariki could discover these in the leaves, taking this to a different element. Our tamariki worked alongside each other, sharing the resources as they explored as Kaiako supported and encouraged them in this play.
