BAA BAA BROWN SHEEP,
HAVE YOU ANY WOOL?
YES SIR, YES SIR, THREE BAGS FULL!
ONE FOR MY MASTER AND FOR THE DANE
AND ONE FOR THE PRESCHOOLER’S NEST THAT LIVES DOWN THE LANE!
Last week preschoolers learned about the art of FELTING and transformed brown wool fleece into robin’s nests. Using liquid soap, hot water, wool fleece, a plastic egg and strong preschool hands, scholars magically manipulated wool roving into a hollow egg shape.
After the wool dried, the egg shape was cut in half and students were surprised to find they had created two robin’s nest!
After reading THE CARROT SEED by Ruth Krauss, Preschool Scholars were curious and experimented with ROOT VEGETABLE SEEDS and
ABOVE the GROUND VEGETABLE SEEDS!
They planted seeds in miniature GREENHOUSES, watered the seeds and placed them in the SUNLIGHT!
Which seeds will GERMINATE FIRST, CARROT SEEDS or PEA SEEDS?
13 scholars predict CARROT SEEDS will GERMINATE first and 14 scholars believe PEA SEEDS will SPROUT first!
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
PRESCHOOLERS ALSO DREW ROOT VEGETABLE DIAGRAMS.
Can you locate the ORANGE edible ROOTS, and the GREEN stems? We also added WORMS, NIMBUS CLOUDS, the SUN, and RAIN!
