This week we continued our unit on Transportation, by reading the book What Do Wheels Do All Day? by April Jones Prince.
We created a chart by categorizing types of transportation – land, water and air during whole group time. We thought carefully about how different vehicles could move.
In the Science Center we continued our exploration of ramps by covering them with different types of materials to determine what would make a good ramp and why.
In the Writing Center we introduced maps and the children had an opportunity to create their own types of maps – road, rail, treasure and even our home!
Next week we will continue to explore our unit of transportation by looking into what types of community helpers drive certain types of transportation.
