t is for tracks

train tracks

my idea was to have trays of fine colored sand to move trains through to make tracks.  i even matched the train cars with the color of sand.  i didn’t expect it to stay seperate, but i was curious how long it would.

tracks

the children were interested in this for about 15 minutes.  then they began scooping and piling it up.

scooping sand

by the next day, i released and added cups and spoons.  it was like 6 zen gardens.  there was quiet, quiet work of spooning sand from tray to cup, from cup to tray.

scooping sand

children, the best leaders.
