A Balancing Act

Lori and Erica, two imaginative teachers at Schoolmates, came up with this activity. At the end of the school day, they braved the wind and cold in search of just the right moss to create a spring-like center for the preschoolers. This one activity offers each child so much. It offers practice with fine motor skills, concentration, and patience. Then, it offers a chance to investigate the moss itself—its color, feel, small details, smell, and the way it reacts to the golf tees. And any activity that involves golf tees and glass marbles is fun and visually spectacular. As I marveled at the activity, Lori laughed and said, “And The Masters golf tournament is being held right now!”
