Vegetable vendor comes to school

Just as we had called the Fruit vendor during the "Fruits" month, this month ("Vegetables" month) we had the Vegetable vendor come in to sell his veggies to the children. As we have been showing & talking about a new vegetable everyday, the children were familiar with most of the veggies in the vendor's basket & learnt a few more. They had even bought money with them to buy some veggies from the vendor.

First, we decide what to buy -

Then we weigh it -

Then we pay the money & pick up our bag -
Finally, we sit & check if everything is in order -

Sink or Float

This was a fun and informative session discovering objects that sink & objects that float. At first, children just sat & observed what happens -

Very soon, they all wanted to repeat the experiment themselves -
