This week, we began our Babies Unit by looking at animal babies and reading the fact book Follow Me by Shira Evans. We also read the book Stellaluna by Janell Canon. This book explored the differences and similarities among some baby animals as one baby animal got lost and became friends with others.
Together we charted the different types of baby animals. We discussed specific names of baby animals such as kittens, puppies, calves and cubs.
We began our research at the Science Center with information books and iPads, drawing and writing about chosen baby animals in our science journals.
In Art, we painted, collaged and drew pictures of baby animals to present to our friends during circle time.
Next week, we will be continuing our study of animal babies and their habitats.
