Not Just a Box - Day 5 - Gifts
In Stirling it's their last day of Virtual Nature School before starting nursery, and so they have given US the gift of sending in all their favourite memories from the last 10 weeks - thanks guys!
Not Just a Box - Day 4 - Growing
Most of us have used a lunch box, but have we ever thought about what the food in it is and where it came from? What could we do with boxes and plants? Today we're looking at what we could grow in our box! As most of the food you might find in your lunch box has been grown we're going to investigate the difference between fruit and vegetables, what plants can be food and how we might grow our own food in our boxes.
In Clackmannanshire they were busy building a house in a box, and a whole planet in a box!
Meanwhile in Stirling, they were trying to grow veg without soil. They used 1 box and 2 jars and are waiting to see what works. They used carrots from the garden and the rest of the veg went into soup for the weekend.
Not Just a Box - Day 3 - Bees
In Glasgow they had a great morning remembering what they had learned about bees before starting Virtual Nature School. They even remembered "hexagon"! They found a bit of a wasp nest in the garden shed which they had a good look at before making their own little bee do a waggle dance. They ended up in the park to look for bees and wasps, finding some bumble bees, a honey bee and some wasps 🐝
Not Just a Box - Day 1 - Building
Welcome to a new week! Today we begin an investigation into boxes by asking the question "what can you build with a box?". This might sound like a really simple question but as we dig deeper into that idea it becomes more complex. You might start asking yourself, how many boxes will it take to build my idea, what size of boxes will I use and how will I get them to stay together?
There are so many different things that we could build with boxes. We wonder if you're able to make a tower as tall as you. Let's have a look at all the things you were able to build today.
In Glasgow, day one of boxes week started with a bit of box finding and looking at pictures of different things made of boxes that they found in their "discovery drawers". After a chat they decided they wanted to make an ocean with fish and seaweed like one in one of the pictures they were looking at.
In Edinburgh they made some amazing constructions that reached all the way to the roof!
And in Stirling their imagination was running riot today! They were building, stacking, making and doing all sorts of things like a stage, a home for Tigger the cat
and a drum!
