When the children looked at the different scarecrow pictures, they abstract by finding the main common features and decide what can be ignored.
Tinkering occurs as the children try out different materials for parts of their scarecrows. They used logical reasoning to predict which methods and materials might be successful.
Creating and Collaborating
As the children were making their designs, they were encouraged to test them out and debug where appropriate.
Working in groups at this activity led to them developing their collaboration skills.
