Teacher's Guide to Water Play: The MATCH Box Project; Prototype Edition.
Olson, Nancy; And Others
The multimedia kit on water was designed for use by nursery school and first grade children. Water is an intriguing part of a child's world; for this reason, water was chosen as the medium for this set of instructional materials. The child's natural way of exploring his environment is through play; he is really learning ways to discover and experience the world first hand. The box contains such equipment as aprons, mops, pails, tubing, containers of various shapes, funnels, water wheels, pumps, and fountains--all to be used as the child sees fit. There are also photographs, a film and a record to help generate discussion. The teacher's guide consists mainly of large photographs with comments about the activity pictured, poems and quotes from the children, and suggestions of ways to focus their attention on an interesting event. Ways to continue exploring after the kit is returned are presented. A short description of the MATCH Box Project is included. (JY)
