wire baskets and plastic tubing to observe water

Another idea I liked from Designs for Living and Learning:

Again, I can’t show the photo, but it’s a cool idea; the blurb explains:

“This idea was adapted from college instructor Tom Drummond, who created a structure of wire baskets in a water table through which clear plastic tubing was arranged. here, the children pour colored water into funnels at the ends of the tubes and watch how varying volume and pressure force the water to move through the tubes at different speeds.” (p.139)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
