Spring has been a perfect time for us to explore our environment and nature.On Monday morning we were very excited to find that each of our six Painted Lady Larva were molting for the last time and making their transformation from caterpillar into a chrysalis. It is a fascinating process for our young budding scientists to witness.
Our unit of study this week was learning about vertebrates, with a focus on fish and amphibians. In all of our nature studies, life cycles become a topic of conversation. It is wonderful to see hands go up and excited voices saying, “It’s the circle of life!”, first the egg…..then it starts all over again!!”
Our five and six year old students had an awesome time on their field trip to see the Dinosaur exhibit in Myrtle Beach. We had a private tour of the exhibit with a teacher guide, uncovered ‘”fossils”, did a dino craft, and rode a robotic dinosaur. A huge thank you from our class to our parent volunteers who made this trip possible.
