This month the preschoolers finished the unit on maps and the European continent. We made passports and took a pretend flight to London. We had high tea and rode the double decker buses before heading off to France to see the Eiffel Tower. Students also visited Greece, Iceland, and Romania. At the end of the trip, the students wrote postcards to their families.
Preschoolers also had fun ringing in the Lunar Year of the Ox with lion dances and eating noodles with chopsticks.
We are now studying physical science until spring break. Our first topic was light. The preschoolers learned that light travels in a straight line and why shadows appear. Next, we will be exploring sound and sound waves and making some of our own instruments. We’ll finish our unit with a look at magnets and a class science fair project.
