What does scientific exploration look like in Early Years? 9 small plastic dinosaurs set in soap blocks and a tray of water = Developing an understanding of how viruses spread (with the help of a little glitter and a few high 5s), thinking about how important hand washing is for our health, exploring solids, liquids and irreversible change, having fun with the bubbly water but being careful not to create waves and splashes in the tray that mean the water escapes over the side, working out the best methods of releasing the trapped dinosaurs quickly….endless possibilities and bags of fun!
