Five Senses -Week 3

Five Senses- Week 3

I have attached some photos from our 5 Senses Science Center Scavenger Hunt. We had clip boards and a scavenger hunt checklist to find animals in the science center with feathers, scales, soft fur, chirping sounds, crunching sounds, and drinking sounds. We also saw our friends Snowball and Snowflake!

Small Groups For This Week:
1.Language Arts- Identifying letters and shapes through layers of cloth or blankets using our sense of touch.  This is inspired by the Princess and the Pea. 
2. Math- We will be creating stair patterns with blocks then creating our own patterns using square cubes.
3. Science- We will be conducting an experiment with "Mystery Powders." (really sugar and salt). We will try to identify the mystery powders by sight with magnifying glasses, then touch, and finally by taste. We will record our findings to bring home to share.
