Last month, we studied the amazing continent of Africa. We learned about the geography, the different biomes that stretch across the vast continent, and which animals live in each climate. African folktales were also a hit, and the children were eager to discuss the similarities and differences of the various stories. Several special events took place last month, as well. First, we were so excited to watch our Kindergartners join the El students in performing the play “Supper for Crow!" Next, during a visit from Mercer Slough, the children got to expand their knowledge of birds- even practicing what it is like to gather food with various types of beaks! And finally, to celebrate Earth Day, the students enjoyed a musical performance by Eric Ode.
Next month, we look forward to beginning our unit on Mammals!
