How do I know what my child is learning(Assessment)
Let them explore the materials and be creative.
How can you extend this activity? (Modifications)
You can use paper plates, tissue paper, paper towels, instead of coffee filters, I used markers and dotter paint and sprayed a small squire of water.
Helpful Hints: (Pitfalls & Solutions)
The pitfall is if you do spray with water make sure it is in/on something that you are fine with being colored. The color will leak through. The Solution is to put it on a tray, paper plate, or ect.
