Light play

With a humble light box, the children manipulated the magnetic tiles on the bright surface. Starting out as a bit of a novelty, the children piled the tiles in massive towers, how many tiles could they fit? Then their play became refined, with intention. The children were architects, engineers and artists, creating sculptures and mazes, working with the light cast through the tiles. Aesthetically, we were all enraptured and it was a beautiful experience for all, even the audience! We also discovered some bone x-rays a past Veterinary doctor parent had donated. This branched out to many interesting discussions- past families/attending children; bone structures and the mystery mammal and what bone could that be; what a x-ray is and how the light box amplifies the image. Such curious and confident minds discussed these topics. Looking forward to more adventures in learning with light.
