The children used technology and blocks to explore and build famous structures from around the world! They worked in small groups to look at pictures and videos online of the Great Wall of China and the Eiffel Tower and then collaborated on the process of building the structures.
Today in Art, the children talked about surface tension in kid friendly terms with Mr. T. Students learned about how materials like chalk would interact with water in both whole and crushed form, and why a whole piece of chalk would sink, while chalk powder would float.
We added crushed chalk to water and dipped drawing paper inside to create a cool effect on the paper. Next week when the papers are dry, we will be drawing on them with black marker.
The children explored motion and liquid in art class with Mr. T!
Another school year is off to a fabulous start! Our new preschoolers have been busy making friends and learning all about school this month. They have been actively engaged in play at our learning centers in the classroom and enjoying their daily specials- art, music, media and physical education. We have spent time outside and are learning yoga on rainy days. Our class loves to dance and sing! Our current favorite songs are- 5 Brown Buns, 5 Green Apples and 10 in a Bed. Please enjoy this snapshot of our classroom community!
