Children’s Class July 22: Animals, Measurement, and Space

Posted by kimr on

Today the younger kids learned about measurement while talking about animals and how big or small they are. They measured an elephant footprint, measured each other and sang and danced about animals. Then they colored a giraffe and gave it spots. The older kids talked about space with Ms. Jennifer. They talked about planets, constellations, NASA, and they even got to wear a space helmet!
