Landmark 1 (Explore Together Weekly)
As educators were clearing ice off the pathways on the playground the children quickly took the opportunity to help shovel the ice pieces as well. Noticing all these ice chunks I wondered what we could use these for? I started stacking the ice and some children joined in working together to make ice towers. Some children took the role of ice collectors while others stayed and built. Sometimes the towers would fall over and we would have to problem-solve together putting the bigger pieces on the bottom. This was an interesting way to use ice as loose parts and I wonder what the ice will be tomorrow?
