Over the next several weeks, the seasonal change will be the focus, as the children discover and learn about wind and its effects, the water cycle and clouds. After Earth Day the children reflected about the importance of protecting the earth’s natural resources. With the element of wind as the primary focus of study this week, the children shared their ideas about the wind, how they know it’s there and what it can do. After hearing Gilberto and the Wind by Marie Hall Ets, the children made windsocks decorated with colorful spring pictures. Brainpop Jr. provided an informative visual media segment on wind. During their discussion, they learned that wind is made of moving air. They discussed ways that the wind is helpful and ways that the wind is harmful to the environment. The children designed their own kites, which they took outside to the backfield to fly.
