Some VOICES learning center activities

Week One : An investigation of our natural landscape and environment.
 
 

The children wanted to investigate the side of the building near the greenhouse "where the big trees are."
They discovered many things to collect at the base of those trees!

The children wanted  to return to "their" trees. 

Children noticed the leaves falling and tried to catch them. A bench inspired a leaf jumping game and a tree with a curved trunk  offered  an invitation to climb!

(You will also hear Maya’s tree song.)

The children decided to create their own "Book of Colors". Using a digital camera,the children photographed colors they noticed in the community garden and the rest of our outdoor environment.
The children helped to upload the photos onto the computer and then selected the ones the wanted to use in the book. Using the Powerpoint program, children typed the color word that was represented by each photo.
