Our unit this week is all about taking care of animals and how some animals have a special job and take care of us. We will also learn about the people who take care for animals both in our community and in captivity.
This unit will send us to the breathtaking African savanna. We will explore this amazing ecosystem, including animals and plants that can be found on over half of the African continent.
Here’s what you need for our Animal Care Unit and Savanna + Safari Unit.
Do you have anxiety about teaching math to your child? Let’s break down a few myths that will help alleviate your fears.
Butterflies are amazing insects! 🦋 They can be found in all habitats, from rainforests to deserts to grasslands—no matter where you live, you have butterflies! This unit will be filled with lots of science, plenty of math, and even a biographical story for a splash of history.
Pack your bags and your sunscreen—we are going back in time to the mystical land of ancient Egypt! The people of ancient Egypt left us lots of clues about how they lived and what they believed, so this week we will learn about the people, their culture, and their way of life—and death.
Here’s what you need for our Butterflies + Migration and Ancient Egypt units.
Butterflies are one of our favorite pollinators! We’ve discussed in other activities how other animals help to get plants the pollen they need to make seeds, but in this post, we’re taking a closer look at the butterfly proboscis (AKA, a long, strawlike tongue that coils and uncoils) and how a butterfly spreads pollen when it drinks a flower’s nectar.
This beautiful craft takes a closer look at the butterfly’s fascinating life cycle and metamorphosis. This craft can be done in several steps (not necessarily all at once) depending on your child’s level of attention and interest.
This simple activity is a play-based way to teach your child about the concept of sequencing. Start by putting the materials together, and then find a way to play that meets your child’s abilities where they are.
