Here's this week's glimpse into what's happening in and out of our classrooms here in the day school! These feature lessons, activities, centers, and saunters from a different classroom each week.
Today's feature: Explorer's Nest Building Inquiry
We wanted to know how birds build nests.
We tried gathering items and building nests on our own..
But they didn't stay together very well
So we examined some nests that birds made, and read a book about birds and their nests.
We found out that birds often use mud to make their nests stick together. We mixed mud, gathered more materials and tried again.
The results were much better!
- Used observations to describe what animals do and how they behave
- Used reasoning and deduction to solve problems (why didn't our nests stay together?)
- Used teamwork and social skills to plan and complete a task
