Infant Program

We were able to extend our exploration for art to building our understanding of movement! From tracking movement in paint, play dough and bubbles to finding ways to use movement to understand our environment.

We explored “movement” with a tube, fan, pompoms and feathers! In the past, we have learnt how the fan can blow bubbles with the wind it creates and thought this would provide another challenge and extension to their understanding and theories. The children got to test how the materials were able to catch the wind and flow through the tube individually, as well as, in a group.Some were very curious on how the pompoms or feathers would take off through the tube and others were curious on how they would pop out from the end. Some would watch as the materials would flow through the tube and others would try to collect them as they scatter throughout the room. Regardless the way one child was testing their theories, they were able to build their understanding by learning from each other as they explore.

We would like to provide a challenge to think of other ways to explore, develop, and test theories around “movement” for yourself, your family or for us!
