During these cold days of January, we have been learning about snow and winter!
Out dramatic play area has been transformed into a space for the children to ice fish, get toasty warm by a camp fire, pretend to hibernate like bears and protect themselves from the elements in our igloo.
Today we began to explore things with wheels! We learned that wheels help to move objects from one place to another. We also learned that sometimes people can’t move around on their own, so they use a wheel chair.
In our experiment, we tried to move a heavy box and a grown up without wheels. The box was really hard to push and the kids couldn’t even budge the adult! They decided to use a scooter and it made the work so much easier.
