This week, we opened our sand and water table as a center. Currently, it has sand and measuring tools (measuring cups and measuring spoons) and funnels. This is a great center for hands-on exploration of objects. It allows the preschoolers to use real-world tools (measuring tools) while playing. Throughout the year, this center will have sand, water, and other materials for the preschoolers to interact with.
