May: Bubbles, Boats & Floats

May 2, 2016   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  Comments Off on May: Bubbles, Boats & Floats

Your children will love splashing up their imagination in this water filled theme. Experiment with what will sink and float. Children will make a mini canoe and create a pretend river. Take building lessons from a beaver, then swim on down to the lake. Fish for letters, count ducks and then hurry home to get squeaky clean. Fill a bucket with soapy water. Wash your hands, dishes and even a dirty dog. Water is an important natural resource. Your children will learn how to preserve, appreciate and protect our water.
