Our Transitional Preschool classroom at our Park West center recently learned all about motion!
The class began their exploration with a focus on the circular motion of wheels. Ms. Claudette, Transitional Preschool teacher, put an extra flair on the activity by adding fabric as a creative expression to enhance the bicycle wheel's motion.
As the children observed the wheel’s circular motion, they were able to then apply the same concepts, recognizing similar motion in other objects at home, in nature and at school.
We then elevated this recognition by probing our students to further explore the implications of motion. By asking investigative questions about motion, the class was able to further develop their physical and problem-solving skills.
The end result? The students were spinning in the delight of their own accomplishments!
