Explore and Look: Puddle Pictures

Let’s look at different pictures of puddles.   


  • photos of different puddles from books or downloaded from the Internet  


Tell children that you’re going to look at pictures of puddles. As you show them the different images, ask:

  • Has anyone played in a puddle? What did you do?
  • Do all puddles look the same? What is different about the ones in the pictures we’re looking at and the ones that you have seen?
  • If you wanted to make a puddle, how would you do it?

Tell children that later on you’ll all go outside to make your own puddles. Hang the pictures of puddles in the art center. Encourage children to draw pictures of streams, rivers, and other bodies of water during learning center time.
