Beaver Fun!

This afternoon we enjoyed a puppet show that gave us some information about the beaver. We learned about some of their special physical features and who preys on the beaver!
videoAfter the puppet show we had an opportunity to be a beaver! The children were able to be a beaver and travel through their lodge and then get a stick to chew on as a special treat!

Scientific Drawings

The children have worked very hard creating their own scientific drawing of a honeybee. We think scientifically when we draw detailed pictures showing characteristics of something alive. Some of us even tried labeling special parts of our honeybees.

A Slideshow of Discoveries!

We had our first 4 Winds program on Insect Adaptations. It was wonderful! The children learned lots of new vocabulary, had opportunities to look for insects in a garden habitat and then had a special "mosquito" drink!
