During December …
The children will be exploring the theme of Where We Live. We will be discussing what kind of homes we live in, along with the diverse places where people live in neighborhoods across New York and beyond. It provides an opportunity to develop new vocabulary through words such as façade, apartment, skyscraper and brownstone, and to build on children’s observational skills as we look at our school neighborhood.
During this unit we will also inquire and learn about the homes of animals, both pets living in homes and those animals that create their own homes. We will look more closely at how animals and people make homes, by observing, planning and creating blueprints and floor plans to use for our own building in the Art and Block Centers. In the Science Center we will also explore the different kinds of materials used to make homes and shelters.
