Insects - Preschool

In Preschool we are learning about insects. We have learned that insects have 3 body parts: head, thorax, and abdomen. That they have 6 legs and 2 antenna. Some insects have wings and some do not. We have learned that spiders are not insects because they have 2 body parts and 8 legs. We have sorted bugs by the kind of bug, and colors. We have sorted bugs from flowers. We drew pictures of bugs and pretended to catch bugs in a jar. We have made spiders. We made ant headbands. We will continue learning about insects next week.

Going to the farm - Kindergarten and Preschool

The preschoolers and kindergarteners took a walk down to the farm on the school grounds. They got to pet goats, and sheep. The also fed goats, sheep and cows. It was a lot of fun. Thank you to Mr. Griesel and his students for taking time out of their day and letting us experience the farm.
