March – The Study of Buildings!
For the next two weeks, students will learn about buildings. As we investigate this topic, we will work together to find the answers to our theme questions. Some of the questions include: What do buildings in our neighborhood and other places look like? Who builds buildings? What are buildings made of?
Some of the books we will be reading this week are:•The Three Little Javelinas by Susan Lowell•Buildings, Buildings, Buildings by Judith Bauer Stamper•Building A House by Byron Barton•Build It From A to Z by Trish Holland
Lessons and activities for the theme:
Math – Students will have connecting blocks to create and measure structures.
Art – Children will have access to magazines with pictures of buildings and scissors to make collages or play-doh to construct buildings.
Blocks – Students will be able to create numerous types of buildings with different blocks.
Pretend Play– Students will have construction worker clothing and props that reflect neighborhood buildings.
Science - Students will be able to observe sample building materials, such as, brick, wood, steel, and cinder block with magnifying glasses.
