We placed baking soda and heart glitter into the tray and took turns squirting vinegar in the hearts to watch them foam up. We then talked about what was happening and what they saw when they put the vinegar in.

Going on a Shape Hunt

Shapes are all around us!  During group time in preschool today, we discovered a secret shape hidden under our carpet circle then searched the classroom to find its match,  then we sorted them on our shape mats.  What a fun way to explore squares, ovals, diamonds, circles, and triangles.  After our hunt, we read the book Mouse Shapes and watched as the little mice used a variety of shapes to create different pictures, then we used our own creativity to create our own shape pictures!

Our shape of the month is a heart. During group time the boys and girls had the chance to play a matching game! Each child came up to the board to match a heart. The children did a great job finding their matches!

The Arctic Habitat

February 9, 2015 Preschool No Comments
by Ms. Taylor

Last month in preschool we learned a lot about the Arctic Habitat!  We got to learn about various animals like the walrus, narwhal, arctic fox, and polar bear.  In order for animals to live in the harsh, cold weather, they had to have special adaptations that allow them to stay warm.  Some animals have lots of fur to keep them warm, others have lots of fat or blubber.  Others hibernate.  We learned that hibernating is when animals go into a deep sleep during winter.  We learned where certain animals go when they hibernate and we got to pretend we were hibernating animals too!  Animals wake up when it gets warm and they go on hunt for food, so when we finished hibernating it was time for snack!!

Arctic Habitat

 We learned all about the arctic habitat last month!  Some animals we focused on were the polar bear, the walrus, the arctic fox, and the narwhal!  Did you know that there are NO penguins in the arctic habitat!! They only live in the Antarctic!  Animals that live in the harsh cold weather in the arctic, have to have special adaptations that keep them warm such as thick, heavy fur coats, hibernation, or lots of fat or blubber.

To learn what it would be like to have lots of blubber while swimming in the arctic water, we did an experiment.  Students put their hand in ice water for a couple of seconds! It was soooooo cold!

Then we put our hand inside a bag of shortening and put it back in the water but this time it was warm.  We couldn’t even feel the cold water!  IMG_6923 IMG_6938

We also learned about hibernation and where animals hibernate in the winter.
