Tinkering Tuesday ‘Dengineering’ 8.10.19

October 8, 2019

Today we had our first Tinkering Tuesday of the year. The children’s project was to create a den for Baby Bear. In teams they all discussed their ideas, what materials they would use, and what their den would look like. They then collected the materials and began to build, stopping to think about what was going well, and what they could improve upon. In the afternoon they all tested their dens and wrote evaluations for them, thinking about what they could make better next time.

Holly Class had some really fantastic ideas and were very creative. Our dens included flags, swings, trampolines and swimming pools, fires and chimneys and even a river with fish in and a fishing rod!
