Rainbow Rockets

Rainbow Rockets

Mar 11, 2020 We made Rainbow Rockets. This was an outside activity that the kiddos watched and made predictions about which color would go next. I filled film canisters half-way with colored water (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple).

Making Snow

Making Snow

Feb 2, 2020 The kiddos were all thrilled with the chance to make some fake snow. Each child got to add a cupfull of fake snow to the container. We then added polar animals to it for the children to play with during centers. The best part was that it actually snowed the night we made snow.

We have been learning about Polar Animals, particularly the polar bear and penguins.

PM Polar Animals Unit

Jan 22, 2020 We have been learning about Polar Animals, particularly the polar bear and penguins. We found out they both have blubber which helps keep them cold in icy water and that penguins have a special oil on their feathers which helps keep the cold water away.

Butterflies!

Butterfly Release!!

Oct 27, 2019 Our butterflies all emerged from their chrysalis. We ended up with 6 butterflies total. First we determined how many boys & girls we had (5 boys and 1 girl!) and took pictures with our new friends. We then released them outside so they could begin their journey to Mexico!
