The class has entered into our fourth block of the year, "Human and Animal" (zoology). It has been an incredible block so far. This first week has focused on animals associated with the head--mostly sea animals and invertebrates such as the octopus, cuttlefish and oyster. Next week we will move on to those that we associate with the trunk, and then the limbs.This first block will focus on relating each animal to the human being (hence head, trunk and limbs) in a way that speaks to the child's imagination. It has been exciting to share details of these animals with the class and a great gift hearing what they already know about them as well!
