We went on our first field trip to the apple orchard! The children learned about how apples grow, how cider is made, and we all picked apples from the trees and pumpkins from the patch.
Today we were world travelers and architects. We started by taking a virtual trip to the White House and then to the other side of the world to see the Great Wall of China! The children worked together to build these famous structures noticing details, shapes, lengths, and sizes.
First stop- Washington D.C.
We hopped in our airplane and headed to China!
For our long walk along the wall, we packed a “backpack” with snacks and water!
We needed LOTS of steps!
We counted 4 columns for the White House.
Examining the details!
The Great Wall is very tall as well as long!
Don’t forget the tourists!
“The fountain is 4 fingers tall!”
What’s the White House without the first family?
The front of the White House has never looked better! 🙂
The Great Wall wouldn’t be complete without tour guides!
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!
