In "Sing to the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program
Children explore the power of water in a hands-on experiment. They work together to construct a channel through which water can flow—a challenge which uses cooperation, creativity, and flexibility as participants negotiate which ideas to use and how to combine ideas.
Invite the children to work together to use the materials you have provided to plan and then build a path where water can flow.
Have them construct the channel. Then, place a large bowl at the bottom of the channel to capture water, and use the pitcher to pour water in the top and see where it goes. Engage analysis of the experiment with these questions:
Engage participants who lack manual dexterity for building in planning and analyzing construction.
