As I watched and listened there was a noticeable sense of wonder and inquiry as they chatted, laughed and chased after bubbles.
There were many hypotheses being made and several cause and effect statements. Here are a few:
• “It broke because of the light” (she sent a beam of light from the flashlight on a bubble).
• “It will pop if you try to catch it”
• “You’re in the way of the wind” (noticing that the wind took the bubbles in specific directions)
• “The small one is good. The big one doesn’t work” (referring to the wands they made)
• “Maybe try it again. Shake your bottle”
• “Slowly. Don’t do it every fast or it won’t work”
• “If you try to catch the wind when it’s going really slowly it can help”
• “Hello Everybody, there’s one caught on a leaf. It’s really flat on one side”
Bubbles floating in the sky, away they go
The wind takes them up up up
Our minds watch, full of wonder
Feeling our spirits soar like the bubbles in the sky
and go far, far away
