Note From The Teachers


This month we will start a new unit of study Light, Water and Plants. Children move from exploring various modes and aspects of transportation to inquiring and thinking critically about light, water, and plants. In this unit, children have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of natural and man-made sources of light. They will also identify various places where we can find water. Children move from exploring the properties and uses of water and light to observing and learning about different kinds of plants. They will observe, discuss and explore light, water and plants in their classrooms and throughout their environment.


Our focus questions will be:

  • What happens to water when it changes temperature?
  • What happens when we put things in water?
  • What are plants and how does water help plants and people?
  • What kinds of lights are around us? How does light help plants and people?
  • What is darkness? What are shadows?
  • What food comes from plants?
  • Why are plants important?

    Books We Will Read


    All The Water in The World by George Ella Lyon: Where does water come from? Where does it go? 


    Does It Sink or Float? by Susan Hughes: Investigate the differences between objects that sink and objects that float
