We went on a fun nature walk around the school and found signs of spring!
We are learning about the life cycle of caterpillars- how they go through metamorphosis and change into butterflies. Our class was able to watch this process first hand with Painted Lady butterflies!
Today, the children observed the butterflies as they had emerged from their chrysalises. They also drop painted large butterfly shapes and learned about symmetry. Our classroom also received 4 new iPads and the children had fun exploring the educational apps!
Our STEAM Friday friends engaged in some fun and helpful activities for Earth Day! We weeded two gardens to prepare for planting our butterfly and sensory gardens. While weeding, we checked the rain gauge and found some earthworms. The children also excitedly went on a “Trash Hunt” to help keep our earth clean and beautiful.
We have been learning about our 5 senses for the past 2 weeks. Today we did an activity where we used 4 of our senses at once! We made our own scented watercolor paints!
