Preschool 2

In Preschool, we have started our last Unit of Inquiry “Sprouting Up!”.  In the beginning of the week the children planted some seeds in plastic cups. They learned what some of the plants needs are: plants need soil and water. The seeds were placed on the windowsills for further observations. By the end of the week some of the seeds had already sprouted! The Preschool 2 children counted and measured the sprouts and recorded the data on a graph. On Thursday, all the preschool groups went on a walking fieldtrip to the Kipsala Exibition hall to explore the Garden and Flora exhibition.  It was a lot of fun to see all the plants, greenhouses and tractors there! The children also had a great time reading the plant names listed on labels. We also purchased some more seeds to be planted in the classroom. We are looking forward to seeing our plants grow even bigger in the weeks to come!
