Experiencing Drainlaying


Talk about authentic experiential learning! Our day of drainlaying with the Aaron and Shane, the hugely patient crew from Manaia Excavators, was a thoroughly satisfying day for a group of three and four year olds at Manaia Kindergarten.  They asked many thoughtful questions as they watched Aaron and Shane dig with their shovels, pump tanks, sort out drainpipes, and use the big digger to move rocks and dig ditches. Every step of the way,  the children were there with their shovels, diggers and trucks to help out where they could - all the while keeping themselves safe from the big machine!
