This week the preschoolers began the movement and motion unit study by looking at balls. During circle time they had a discussion about things that move and determined balls fit in that category. As the conversation progressed the children talked about different attributes of balls and how they might move.
After much discussion the children gathered all the balls in the gym to play.
The children are bringing balls from home to add to our collection at school. Over the next few weeks the children will graph the balls by their color, size, texture, and type.
The children helped to draw the first graph that will be used to gather data about the colors of the balls in our collection. Helping to draw the graph allows the children to practice the skills that were learned when the class studied measurement.
