Early in the week we were scientists and inspected different fruits. With our observations we were able to answer some question like:
“Where are the seeds located in the fruit, on the outside or inside?”
“How big are the seeds?”
“How do the seeds look/feel?”
“How and where does this fruit grow?”
This experiment came with the added bonus of an extra snack time. We also enjoyed an amusing story called “Showdown at the Food Pyramid” about achieving the right balance of healthy foods.
During music we enjoyed rhythm clapping activities using the names of our favorite foods. We had a Sunnybrook student share their musical talent by playing us a a couple songs on the piano and another student brought in a guitar which gave us the opportunity to examine and learn the names of the different parts of the instrument.
The children were delighted by the spring-like weather and enjoyed the time in the sunshine running, playing and doing some “yard work” by helping pick up the sticks off the lawn.
