This week at Frog Song we learned all about bugs! We learned about the life cycle of ladybugs, worms, and butterflies! We found all kinds of bugs, learned about the difference between bugs and insects and how to figure it out when you spot a little creature in nature. We put a bug house outside our classroom for observing bugs! We also tried to move like different kinds of bugs, and found worms have an especially hard task… good thing they are covered in slime and have tiny bristles that help them move!
This week we learned all about earth! What it’s made of, different types of land and water forms, the animals that live in and around those forms, as well as other things like the water cycle! We got to explore all things pond life and watched the pond evaporate right before our very eyes!
We want to thank all of our teachers, families, students and surrounding community for such a wonderful year! We ended the year with a little face paint fun! Can you guess who is what?
The season for tadpoles is upon us! We have been taking a lot of nature walks to our pond in this beautiful, warm weather. The children love exploring at the pond on our property. Some of their favorite activities include searching for tadpoles, climbing up the steep hill, finding bugs in and around the pond, picking flowers and making big pots of soup with natural materials they find!
