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 enjoying the books and cart during the months of November and December.
We used mango scented lotion because mango juice is a favorite drink in Egypt.
Our next theme was based around the fall festival we had at school.
Lots to discover!
We explored the city of London with our next unit.
Jet sounds were recorded on a voice output device and we used a vibrating tube to simulate an airplane ride.
This was a hit!
The students had fun using grey Floam to build a British castle—–like the Tower of London!
The “souvenir” box was a hit! They students also loved the cute little British bear.
Everyone enjoyed cuddling him!
Our oobleck was red, white, and blue—-like the colors of the British Flag.
After hands were rinsed, the students had fun pouring “tea”.
We learned facts about the month of December in this unit!
December has lots of holidays and this box included symbols of many of them.
Of course the christmas tree sunglasses were the biggest hit—-with everyone!
The Wright Brothers first flight occurred in December.
The students fun flying their little plane around the shaving cream clouds.
In addition to scooping up foam letter D’s, measurement was explored during water play.
Lots of fun!
The students sorted white narcissus and green holly, narcissus is the flower of the month.
They did a really great job!
December’s birthstone is turquoise and our blue beans looked just like the real thing!
In recognition of the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize in December, we put a peace symbol in our blue and green rice.
There was also a photo of the earth from space seen at the bottom of the box.
National Chocolate Candy day is celebrated on December 12. We made some chocolate play dough and the students had fun cutting out “candy”.
Of course all that candy could be counted!
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of the fun and learning the took placed during November and December.
We will be back in 2016——Happy Holidays!
