This week, we read the book Over in the Meadow by Ezra Jack Keats. We discovered that a meadow is a habitat with many different types homes where various living things can live.
In the Block Center the children had an opportunity to create different type of habitats (ocean, zoo, aquarium, jungle).
We also focused a lot on what type of animals hatch from an egg. The children brainstormed a list of animals that we charted. Then in the Art Center they got to make paper mache eggs. Once the eggs were dried, the children decorated their egg and imagined what kind of animal would hatch from it.
In the Science Center the children continued their science journals by documenting the baby animals, focusing this week on animals that hatch from eggs.
Next week, we will be focusing on how babies change as they grow up.
