This week we continued our unit on Where We Live by reading Welcome Home, Bear by Il Sung Na and A House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle. We discussed the many different homes where animals live such as nests, burrows, trees, hives and barns. In the Art Center the children were engaged with finding out about and using their imagination to create the different habitats or places where animals live such as the ocean, desert, jungle and farm.
In the Science Center they examined a real bird’s nest and considered what materials would make a good nest. Children also sorted animals according to where they lived in the Math Center.
When we come back from the holiday break, we will begin our new unit on Transportation.
