This week we read An Orange in January by Dianna Hutts Aston. We discussed the journey of an orange from farm to home. The children were then invited to try drawing and writing about the journey of other fruits and vegetables either to their home or school.
In the Art Center we looked at the paintings of famous artists, including Claude Monet’s Sunflowers and Georgia O’Keefe’s Poppy and then enjoyed recreating our own versions.
This week we continued to plant more seeds and to record observations of our seeds sprouting in our science journals.
In the Math Center we used unifix cubes to measure how tall our sprouts had grown, and also used the balance scale to compare which seeds were heavy or light.
Next week we will be discussing why plants are important to us.
