Term 3 Week 4: 7th August 2018
Yummy! Chewy! Wombat Stew!
This term we started off our science inquiry unit by reading ‘Wombat Stew!’ The children enjoyed watching the characters come to life in our puppet show and using tapping sticks to join in with the chorus. We were very excited to gather the ingredients we needed to make our own wombat stew, so off into the bush we went!
After making our stew, we explored the bush again to identify natural and non-natural materials. We went on a scavenger hunt to look for natural items we could use in our centres back in the classroom.
We have been very busy back in the classroom using the materials we found in the bush. We have been making bush animals out of play dough and drawing detailed pictures of materials observed under a magnified glass. We even sorted and counted the number of natural items we found!
Stay tuned for more bush adventures in Kindy Blue!
