The kids had already grown beans (and studied plants) in the fall with the previous teacher. I was a little bummed. My blog is named Growing in PreK and K because I LOVE to do all the plant stuff... so I figured it wouldn't hurt to try a rooting a sweet potato in the science center. No real roots yet. I'll keep you posted. Beta (original huh?) is doing just fine. He actually swims around a lot more than I expected from a beta fish. He likes to hide under his bridge sometimes (wonder why?...)
The rest of the items are my go to PreK items: discovery bottles, winter science books, items to look through, and some found nature items. I look forward to adding more as my students learn how to handle these materials.
Our science lesson last week covered three types of clouds. I wanted to make it more hands-on, so I had the children "make" the cloud types out of cotton balls, write "clouds," and add labels.
