Our Foundry Watershed, Honeysuckle Vine, Bitty Brown Bat Project Is Very Much Alive!

Someone brought us a hearty, tough, hanging on despite the winter honeysuckle vine.  We placed it in water as part of our research experience with honeysuckle vines.  In this post you can see in one of the photos there’s even a bloom.  Great real life visual for our work with creating our own version of a honeysuckle vine.

In another photo you can see one of our children measuring wire as part of this project.  The child is using a tape measure.  The children decided that the wire should be sixty inches long.  One child estimated the length of the wire by counting to sixty as he placed part of his finger on the wire – a great example of estimation and measuring using body parts.

Some children worked with clay experimenting how to hollow out small bitty brown bats so that they can be fired in the kiln.  Our Foundry Watershed, Honeysuckle Vine, Bitty Brown Bat project is very much alive!
