The Work Plan

Friday, May 21, 2010


  The zoology area is the busiest area right now. We have been exploring the wonderful world of insects. We just received our live caterpillars this past Saturday. When the children saw the caterpillars they were excited!!

 They have been reading and working with all the materials that have been on the shelf. The butterfly puzzle has been mastered by many.

 Here is Andrew working with the lifecycyle of the ladybug model. He put them in the correct order all by himself.

  I love how intensed the children were trying to get the insect rubbings to their liking. They would do it over and over until it was to their satisfaction.

 They enjoyed the story of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle.

Sequencing the life cycle of the butterfly. A puzzle of the life cycle of the butterly game turned out to be a great matching work.

 This is a picture of the caterpillars right now. The children have been very careful with the caterpillars. They have been observing their movement very often. They also have been talking to them. They love animals so this insect unit is right up their alley

  1. Sigh, I wonder if it's too late to order my insects. I'm thinking I might move insects up in our order of things to study.
