Welcome to the after party! Each week after the weekly blog featuring activities in the elementary department is posted, our sensory cart is parked in the media center where it is available for check out by the rest of the school.
This post has photos of our middle and high school students during the month of November.
We had 3 great units—-Weather, Veterans Day, and What we eat at Thanksgiving. Read along to see all the fun they had.
The students had a lot of fun with the weather unit—-the snow and glowing “hail stones” were particular favorites.
Pretty cool stuff—-in more ways than one 🙂
Our themed umbrellas are always a favorite and this winter one is particularly lovely—–and fascinating to the students.
Veterans Day boxes were mostly red, white, and blue items such as our rice. We also included blue and red glitter in our oobleck. There was also a box filled with a variety of red, white, and/or blue items such as this very popular fluffy ball.
We moved a little from the red, white, and blue theme with our camo beans complete with little toy soldiers and a discovery bottle complete with Navy submarine!
A week of fascinating fun and learning!
What we eat at Thanksgiving was a unit FILLED with color! The bright orange play spaghetti was a real attention getter!
The students loved exploring whipped (shaving) cream, pop corn kernels and our homemade STUFFING scented play dough!
Cranberry oobleck made for an especially interesting texture—–some of the students liked it
——others not so much 🙂
Our various bath gels always add an interesting element to our rinsing water. For this unit we used Pumpkin Pie scent—–fun and yummy!
By far the favorite items of this unit were our turkey and pilgrim hats, EVERYONE had a blast with them 🙂
Another month filled with fun and learning——Group by Group!
