Mud Day!

Experiencing Science Through Play

Rocks + Soil + Water = MUD!

As we learned all about different rocks, soils and how water effects them, we just had to experience it ourselves. To finish our unit of study, we spent the day experimenting and playing in mud. We used different types of soil to make different kinds of mud and observed as they settled and separated. We read books and wrote poetry about mud, rocks, and water. Then finally we got to get dirty!
The students had a wonderful time exploring, lying, rolling, and digging in the mud. Each one wanted to claim the title of "dirtiest". Even some of the parents couldn't stay out and had to join in the fun.
