Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Birthday greetings to K from Canada - we would have loved to be at the party! Especially a summer party!
What is it about grade two that draws kids to puddles?
I decided today that seven-year-olds are really, really good at recycling.. And at finding great uses for all kinds of things. Today, they were reusing plastic bags to create rivers. It was very serious work.
First, fill a small bag with water from one puddle.
Empty the water in your small bag into a larger bag that your friend is holding. Don't get her wet!
The friend then pours all the water from the larger bag into the river that flows into another puddle.
These kids were reminding each other that water always flows from higher ground towards the lower ground. They must have a really, really good teacher (see the Travelholic Teacher for evidence of this)!
It was an informative day on playground duty. And the sun shone, too!
I also spied a jaguar and a snake having a pencil fight.
Life is never dull around here...

Bwahaha! Amen to the good teacher part :P. Those photos explain the muddy mess that they tracked in today after break. Also, what is with the alter ego sock puppet? It never seems to leave his hand.
