Today, we traveled to Europe!
We began our day with some lovely playtime in the garden.
Then, we came inside to sing the continents song, find Europe on the globe and hear some cultural stories about Europe. Our stories included learning about dancers in Germany, seeing someone in costume for St. Lucia's day in Sweden, talking about tree climbers in Scotland (scaling a tree that is three centuries old!), among other exciting stories about real people, places, homes, and products found in Europe.
We worked up quite an appetite! For snack, we made watermelon "pizza" with shredded carrots, sliced sweet peppers, blueberries and bananas for toppings (representing Italy) and some pretzels (representing Germany).
Our art project today was to make a mosaic using colorful construction paper. The children decided on the design that they wanted and had a great time working on their art!
Before we knew it, it was time for outdoor water play! The children had a blast with the water, shaving cream and cornstarch.
We had a 'wonderful' time and hope you'll join us for our last Wonderful Wednesday of the summer next week. We'll be traveling to Asia!
We are an AMI accredited Montessori school growing daily in spirit & intellect!
