There was so much anticipation leading up to our first ever field trip at night. The children discussed how we would know where to find each other in the dark, if they should wear their pyjamas, and made predictions about what we might observed. Oh the excitement!
The sun sets around 7:00 PM in Singapore so we met at 6:30 PM so we could watch the world transition from day to night. Some of us made connections to discoveries we had made earlier in the week during our day visit to the gardens noticing that the shadows had changed, but that we could still see reflections in the water.
Once it started to get dark, we were ready with our flashlights, glow sticks, and light up toys. What a great opportunity for us to inquire further into the behaviours of light and dark, practice safety in the dark, and take risks by having new experiences and trying new things.
