Making Vegetable Soup
Inspired by our trip to the store the children wanted to make some vegetable soup in our water table.
Using real life tools like ladles, wooden spoons, pots, and whisks empowers children and helps build imaginative play. At this center the children were using specialized language to describe their work and procedural language to indicate the order of their recipe (e.g., first we need to add the onions, next we have to stir them).
Many children were also interested in connecting this experience to our writing center and wrote their own recipes.
