Winter Inquiry With The Audubon!

This afternoon the children had an opportunity to learn about what animals in Vermont are active and how to look for signs of where they are! We also had an opportunity to see a stuffed Fischer too! We discovered how sharp their teeth are!

What Can You Do With A Skull?

Yesterday afternoon we had another wonderful 4 Winds program about skulls and teeth. The children learned so much! Some of the children found it interesting to count how many teeth each of the skulls had! What a great way to practice our oral counting in an authentic way!

How Much Water Will My Snow Make?





This afternoon the children collected snow and placed it in a cup. As the temperature rose, the children noticed that their snow was disappearing. This was a great experiment to encourage the children to make predictions and observations.

What Happens To Snow?

This afternoon we collected some snow from outside our classroom and put it in a plastic glass. We all became scientists! We discovered that scientists make observations and predictions about what they think might happen.
