Hands on Learning
|Posted on 16 April, 2016 at 10:25|
Spring is here and the children are exploring the wonders of the outdoors!
With all the plants and flowers growing the children are investigating seeds and they will learn about life cycles and living things in a variety of ways, like through body movements, drawings, stories read to them and observing seeds and plants grow. They will also learn about the parts of a plant.
At first they look at a variety of seeds by using invstigating tools. They characterize them, and sort them by one characteristic. They will use bird seed for sensory and art.
Then they will plant seeds and watch them grow inside and outside the classroom. We will graph how many days will it take for the seeds to grow and with measering tools they will measure how much the plants are growing.
Soon we will be planting our garden.
