Boats (Exploring Density)
Children start with a ball of clay, which sinks in the water. They form the clay into a boat that will float. After they have made a boat that floats, they add small bear counters to see how many can sit in the boat without it sinking. Note: Only use oil-based, non-hardening modeling clay for this activity. Do not use play dough or earthenware clays.
Trucks & Blocks with Sand
Add Jurassic Sand, blocks, and trucks to the sensory table. Children can build a small village with the blocks and roll the trucks in the sand to make roads around their village. I use Jurassic sand in my sensory table because it is dustless, won’t make a dusty mess in the classroom, and is safe for children with allergies and asthma.
