Week of February 13th!

Theme for the Unit:

Enduring understandings that the student should have by the end of the unit:
  • There are many types of lights in our homes and our cities.
  • Light helps us see and stay warm.
  • Light helps plants grow.
  • When there is little or no light it is dark. Shadows appear when an object blocks light.

Lessons and activities for the week:

Blocks- Students are invited to explore how they might use blocks and a flashlight to create shadow letters.

Pretend Play- Sunglasses will be added to Pretend Play. Students are encouraged to discuss when and where they would wear sunglasses.

Art- Clear contact paper and tissue paper will be added to the art center in order for students to make "stained glass windows."

Science- Students will be able to sort animals into the two categories of nocturnal vs. diurnal.  

Math- Students will be able to match shape manipulatives with their shadow.

Library- Students are invited to read books about our theme, light.
