Worms- The Project

After we investigated worms, the kids decided on a mural as the project to show what they had learned. One thing they all helped with was painting the soil, then they worked in teams to make different parts of the mural. One team cut some green paper for grass. They studied what worm tunnels looked like and painted them onto the soil. After each team worked on the part of the mural they signed up for, they wrote information that they wanted to share about their part of the project. Another…

Morning meeting calendar

I found a great site, Mama Jenn, that had a great calendar for morning meetings. I decided to recreate one for my classroom and change a few things for my needs. (click on the Mama Jenn link for original calendar). I decided to keep the day, month and year (like Mama Jenn)- however I decided for the date to have proper dates instead of numbers. In Australia, our date goes day/month/year, so I also decided to put them in that order on my board. I downloaded a 2012 calendar from…

Force and Motion Inquiry- The Introduction

Ramps and a Focus on Persistence Here are some activities that have been going on since December during the kids play: Do you see the reaccuring theme in their play? These kids have been obsessed with ramps and creating motion! One child created a catapult out of blocks! So we have decided to inquire about force and motion. I have a feeling this will also take us into some simple machines! As the kids made ramps, the problem solving, teamwork and persistence amazed me. These are qualities I…
