Sensory Table: Rock Quarry

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

We are talking about community helpers. So I decided we needed a rock quarry complete with Quarriers (people who work in the quarry) or in our case machines that work in the quarry.
We talked about different jobs in the quarry.
Here are some names of jobs and positions you might find in a quarry

Stone Cutter
Quarry Worker
Stone Worker
Quarrying Specialist
Rock Splitter

The kids enjoyed moving the rocks around the quarry sensory table.







Materials Needed:
Rocks ( I bought these at Michaels they were just decorative rocks)
Machines that would be used in a Quarry

Iceberg Sensory Table

We made icebergs or Igloos in our sensory table!

I filled water balloons with water. My freezer takes 48 hours to completely freeze a water balloon. So I only froze these for 24hours. That way I knew there would be a week point and hollow center. I filled the bottom of the bin with some gravel and tore the balloons open. Which also filled the sensory bin with very cold water. Added our little cold weather friends and the kids explored!

While studying bugs we were talking about ants and their tunneling systems they create.

To give the kids a better understanding of what we were talking about I added PVC pipes to the sensory table with different connectors. I had meant to buy black beans to represent the ants. But used what I had on hand which were black eyed peas.

The kids had a blast building and creating more “tunnels”
