The children will move from exploring transportation to inquiring and thinking critically about light, darkness and shadows. This unit provides opportunities for children to observe objects and phenomena in their environment with increasing complexity. The children will deepen their understanding of natural and man-made sources of light. Activities throughout the unit prompt children to explore light, darkness and shadows with hands-on materials as well as provide opportunities for children to make predictions and think about their world in increasingly abstract ways. Throughout this unit, there are many opportunities to develop children’s literacy skills. Children will enjoy literature, engage in discussions around stories, and retell and act out stories they have read. Children will build on what they know about light, darkness, and shadows through informational texts. They will explore vocabulary words such as “silhouette” and “transparent” to continue to develop their language skills as they engage in scientific explorations and thinking. Towards the end of the month, we will introduce the Water unit. The students will learn about the properties and uses of water. Activities throughout the unit will prompt children will learn about water through hands-on explorations and provide opportunities to observe water in their immediate environment.
