Yesterday, we had a quieter recess because of lunchroom behavior. The kids were supposed to sit and read. We were in the younger kids’ playground area, because there was a nice ledge to sit on there.
While I walked back and forth enforcing silence, I noticed some unusual stains on the asphalt.
The stains looked kind of like rust. And they didn’t have a visible origin. It’s like they were coming from nowhere. Or maybe not. Could these stains be coming from under the asphalt? I was really fascinated. I took several pictures. Some of the kids saw me, so I had to explain what I was looking at. I don’t think they thought it was as interesting as I did.
It looks like the picture above could possibly be the location of a pipe. Maybe the pipe is leaking and rusting, and it’s coming through the pavement? How could the kids not think this is interesting?
