Children's inquiries

This week the children explored the book “If you Give a Pig a Pancake” through different activities. During those activities they were inquirers and came up with the following questions:
- How do you make maple syrup?
- How do you make blueberry sauce?
- What makes you sticky?
- Do pigs eat pancakes?
Learning about making maple syrup.
So today, the children watched a video of how to make maple syrup. Here’s the link to the video clip After the video, we made our own blueberry sauce with fresh blueberries, water, sugar and vanilla flavouring (the children’s idea). It turned out great and all the children enjoyed dipping the crackers in the sauce.
