Preschool went to the zoo! We are learning about how "Living things have needs," which is our "Sharing the planet" central idea. This was a provocation for our learning, so we could see animals in action and learn more about their needs in their habitat. Through the zoo school presentation we watched, we got to talk about how animals need food, water, shelter, and space, and we got to meet a hedgehog named Fou-fou, and a pancake tortoise named Hotcakes.
Stop by 4th grade classroom 2-A on Tuesday, June 19 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. for an exhibition featuring many of the projects worked on throughout the year.
