The preschoolers have just finished the systems of the body unit. The students made body vest and brain headbands representing each of the systems (nervous, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, muscular, and skeletal) that they learned about during the unit. They learned that we are all the same on the inside and that all our systems work together to keep us healthy.
Two preschoolers share their human body vests and brain headbands. The yellow pompom is a bite of food in their stomachs.
Next month, we will be learning about different world holidays and traditions. We started our celebration of lights last week learning about the Hindu holiday of Diwali. A time of year when we celebrate light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance.
The preschoolers made paper Diya’s lamps for Diwali.
The preschoolers will also learn about and celebrate Saint Nicholas Day, Santa Lucia, Hanukkah, and the winter solstice. We will make clove oranges, cut stripes for evergreen trees, and listen to Russian and German fairy tales.
