Weekly News: Recap and Preview

May 14, 2021

Class: 3 AM TWT – Hummingbirds

Recent News:

· BOOKS – We read Swimmy by Leo Lionni and discussed how some types fish swim together in “schools.” We also read No Ordinary Fish by Anne Lawrence to hear some fascinating facts about sharks.

· ART – We painted on bubble wrap then transferred the designs onto paper, played with shaving cream, and finger painted on easels.

· MUSIC – We danced to “The Pirate Song” by Tom Hunter.

· SCIENCE – We compared how different items floated in salt water compared to fresh water, discovered that the items floated better in salt water, and talked about how the ocean is salty and easier to float in than lake, or river water.

Then we learned how sharks and fish are buoyant and why they do not just stay on the bottom of the ocean. Fish have swim bladders that have gas inside and sharks have very oily livers to help them float. We tested this by putting a water bottle with no air bubbles in a tub of water and it sank. Then we put a bottle of water with an air bubble in it and a bottle filled with vegetable oil and no air bubble and saw how they floated in the tub.

· ACTIVITIES – We made patterns with colored sharks and matched letters in the A B Seas magnetic fishing game.

Dramatic Play: Ocean
