We began our science unit on structures by spending time engaged in open exploration with a variety of building materials. Check out some of the structures created!
We engaged in a class science talk about structures students have built in the past. The children also talked about what types of building materials they had prior experiences with. We also came up with a class list of "Block Rules."
Our open explorations continued...
KG students worked together to convert our dramatic play area into a classroom. Students made number lines, ABC charts, poems, and classroom rules to display. The "classroom" is now stocked with supplies for students to play school. They are practicing oral language skills, literacy skills, math skills AND social skills!
