Junior Infants Investigate

Last week, in Therese’s room, some of the children from Katie’s class had some interesting objects to examine……


To investigate the mystery blocks we used our senses to make observations.

Fist, we looked carefully at the blocks and drew pictures of them.

Then, we discussed how they looked; we observed that they were different colours and there were stars and gems in them.


After that, we used our sense of touch to make observations……


We observed that the blocks were slippy, hard and very cold. We also noticed that they were melting.

After lots of investigating we discussed how we might get the objects out of the blocks. We tried putting them in water and stirring them.


After a while, the objects were set free and we got to examine all the treasure that were trapped inside the blocks.
