Preschoolers Learn About Bees



Since it's the bees that bring us the honey for Rosh Hashana, our four-year-old class, the Blue Room, has been studying bees.



For example, the class discussed bee anatomy. The children learned the three body parts: head, thorax and abdomen. They also learned that the bee has two pairs of wings, six legs, two antennae and proboscis. After the discussion each of them captured their knowledge on paper by drawing, using symbolic language.


 
The children also fashioned their own bee sculptures using model clay:

  1. This bee-class looks fantastic. I am homeschool my kids and I must say that nothing is better when parents can also find preschooler activities for their kids. Personally I use kidsfront.com for the teaching ideas. Please have a look here http://www.kidsfront.com/english/synonyms_1.html.
