Some note from the class: Bridges & Huts around the World
This week we looked at and learnt the names of different types of bridges (draw bridge, suspension bridge and arch bridge), as well as some of the most well known bridges around the world. The children decided that the draw bridge was their favourite!
We used clay, toothpicks and popsicle sticks to create our own bridges designing different styles and ways of making them stay up as well as adding lots of different features (drawbridge, doors, monsters)
The elephants experimented with 4 different bridges and tested their strength with stones – we talked about which bridges held the most and why, and how we could make the weaker bridges stronger
Tom started his second year at The Giving Tree School early August of 2016. These are some shots from the first month this year at the kindergarten. Last year, the class’s name is Owl class. This year it’s called Elephant class.
