Our inquiries about the relationships between the water and us continues. We pose questions to ourselves such as who are the friends of the water? how does the water see us? These questions open up more possibilities for us to dig deeper.
Hudson engages his dexterity in controlling his finger pressure in squirting the water out of the balloon to fill into his dump truck.
Planning to extend our experiences of the water with our senses, we take a chance to walk to Green Timber to find a larger area of water encounters.
By treading the water with our legs, our sensation makes sense of this stimulation and begins to process and interpret this information to become our perception.
When asked about our observations on what happens to the logs when it reaches the water? there are multiple responses.
Arjun: "It's sinking".
George: "It's floating".
Jana: "Why do you think it's floating?"
George: "Because it's heavy".
We like to hear the above divergent thinking for it allows us to explore many possible solution.
After listening to the various sounds of water such as 'splash' and 'plop' we let our bodies to illustrate them.
Elie further describes the shape of the sound as 'circles' like a planet. The interest of Felix in revisiting the storybook of planets enables him to connect to the shapes of stars scattered across the night sky.
Including a digital art for Brooks empowers his abilities to handle the mouse to engage with colors, lines, shapes, and patterns in a visually impactful way. Digital art enables us to create a composition of our own based on our imagination.
Through our experience of painting on layers of ice opens up another discovery. We notice similarities between leaves and ice. They both have lines on their surfaces which Elie shares veins are the names of the lines.
In the spirit of walking closer to Christmas, we start unpacking our interests in making our own Christmas ornaments. Vivaan strings the beads using the wire to form a candy cane shape. Arjun draws his name on an envelope to put a cut out image he likes to include as his Christmas wish list.
