This week we wrapped up our Plant unit by reading The Vegetables We Eat. We discussed what the difference between a vegetable and a fruit is. The children got to sort out the fruits and vegetables in our Dramatic play area.
We took a nature walk outside in search of different kinds of plants. The children found various types of flowers and plants. We brainstormed why plants are important to our school community.
In our Art Center, the children used their fine motor skills to stamp out pictures of flowers using various kinds of materials.
In our Science Center, we observed a lettuce head in water to see if it would regrow it’s leaves.
Next week, we will be starting our new unit on Babies. We will be focusing on what babies need.
