The discovery of color in a bottle

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on September 7, 2012

in Baby oil and water, Discovery Bottles

I have been working on building a collection of discovery bottles to add to the shelf located just above my light table…

My husband built the shelf for me and although I can use it to display books or even artwork, I wanted to begin the year with setting out a variety of discovery bottles as I come up with them…

So far, all my discovery bottles have in them is baby oil and water and a few of them have beads. I hot glued the lids closed so the children can walk around them, shake them, and put them on the light table without the worry of water leaking out of the bottles…

I chose to focus first on just different colors as this is the beginning of our new school year and it gives me an opportunity to ask the children what color they have in the bottle they are exploring…

I like having the shelf as well to display them on. I like that the children have to look up and reach up to get them and to put them away. Just the act of reaching up brings in a little stretching in the indoor environment…

My students already know how to turn the light table on and off by themselves and it is a center that is available for their play anytime in our indoor classroom…

I am excited to get busy making more discovery bottles – now I just need to have a little more spare time! Of course, as we progress along in the school year, I will invite my students to help me make  their own discovery bottles to add to our collection…

Have you made any discovery bottles? I would love to hear what you have found to put inside your bottles!
