Heath Extended Day 2-6 Newsletter
March In a Minute
During the month of March we learned about Ireland. We made recipes from the country such as soda bread and cheesy potato Irish casserole. In addition, we made historic monuments from Ireland. Children recreated chapels, castles and tombs from Dublin.
The children also learned about science during this month as well. They discovered the effects of yeast on several sugary beverages. Also students discovered where their food comes from and how many different countries are included to create everyday foods. We learned about forensic investigating by making rubbing of shoes and discovering who these footprints belonged to. Lastly, the children performed an experiment to discover how much fat there was in a variety of snack foods.
During the first two weeks in April, the 2-6 children will learn about Massachusetts. We will engage the children with many hands on activities and projects along with Massachusetts trivia and a trip to the State House. They will learn about Massachusetts history, state icons, government, map, historic cities and much more! We will also be cooking foods that are of importance to our state. Did you know that Boston Cream Pie is Massachusetts official state pie? We look forward to sharing some new fun facts about the state we live it!
During the last week in April, in honor of Earth Day that falls during April vacation, the kids will learn about reducing, reusing and recycling. We have man exciting art and crafts projects planned that will all be made out of recycled materials. If you have any recyclables that you want taken out of your hands, we will gladly take them!
Have a wonderful April Vacation!!!
