January in the Blue Puppy Class
Jan 16 2016
The children constructed a rocket made entirely of shapes.
They did this completely on their own, using a sample as their guide.
We talked about rockets and what makes them go....
The children made "Oval" Penguins!
We discussed the fact that penguins don't fly but are VERY suited to their climate.
The Daddy Penguins care for the egg (it sits on top of their feet, under their fat bellies), while the Mommy Penguins look for food.
We had a tub of ice and toy penguins in the classroom for some Arctic fun ... and some COLD fingers!
The children snipped "snow blocks" out of paper and glued them down to make their own igloos.
We talked about how animals and people can adapt to very cold temperatures.
Did you know that the Inuits (people of the Canadian Arctic) build fires inside of their igloos and stay toasty warm?
More January topics to come...

It's always fun to play and learn in the Blue Puppy Class!!!
