Development of the process:
First of all, we started with a brainstorm and the children gave their ideas about what they could do using these materials.
They suggested some different things like deserts, the beach,...
So we decided to do three different things.
One group made a beach, the other group made a desert and the last group made a forest. Each group had their own materials and they had just one hour to do it.
Finally they finished their work satisfactorily.
They enjoyed the activity a lot and they did a good job.
