Our class recently heard a story about the coming of humans. We discussed what makes humans different from other animals, such as our mind, our capacity to love, our hands and that we walk on two legs. This spawned great conversation, and the children wrote wonderful journal entries about why it is special to be human. Soon, we will begin studying the various types of early humans.
Our common math subject is measurement. We have worked with linear measurement and are now working with temperature measurement.
In the coming weeks, we will study the water cycle and food chains/webs, along with a focus on Earth Day.
