When a tray of shells in Discovery Time becomes an investigation...
One morning, when the Autahi children came to school, they found a tray of shells on the blue table.
Sometimes Carl and Beth put things on the blue table for children to explore, but nobody finds them all that interesting. And that's okay. But this time, a lot of people got quite excited. They enjoyed the shapes and colours of the shells and used magnifying glasses to look at them more closely. They recognised some of them from the beach, but weren't sure how they got there or how they were made.
Soon, lots of questions were bubbling up. We decided to collect all our questions so that we could investigate them some more.
