Newsletter – March 31st

First week of April

Art and Math

We have looked at various life cycles the last few weeks and noticed the changes from week to week or season to season. Our caterpillars are at the pupal stage and will soon be butterflies. Our last art project on this theme will be symmetrical painting of butterflies. Blobs of paint between folded paper, slide hands over, and open to see a butterfly! When they dry they can be further decorated or turned into a kite. Lots of possibilities here.

Next we will look at mirrors – at ourselves, objects, writing. We will draw through a line, this is not easy and will take some practice.

Science and Engineering

Ramps are lots of fun. Speeding cars whoosh down. We will look at angles, height and stability and think about the energy needed to go up or down. Kids, water, toys!!
