Fall is here, and the Doreen Cato Early Learning Center is incorporating the season into our curriculum. The children are beginning to study trees. The'll be observing and comparing trees to learn about what lives in them, what they’re made from, and who cares for them. We hope that this study will help children explore and appreciate nature.
This week the children took a nature walk on a beautiful fall day to collect and investigate the parts of trees that have fallen, like leaves, bark, acorns, twigs, flowers, fruit, or cones.
As they study trees, we will use literacy, math, the arts, and technology to explore the topicsin depth. We will learn important social studies and scientific concepts through firsthand investigations.
