Recently we have been learning about natural disasters. The children built a town out of blocks and we put them on the dirt.
Next we poured a small amount of water to show what a light rainfall will do to the earth. Some of the buildings got a little damaged.
Lastly, we showed what a heavy flood can do to a down by dumping a whole bowl of water on the town. A lot of the buildings sank. The children really enjoyed seeing what could happen, and we had fun talking about the dangers of heavy rain and flooding. （Alex and Michelle）
