During the second trimester, the infants classes 5C and 5D learned about our neighborhood. We studied the ways people move from place to place in our neighborhood, such as in cars, on buses, on bicycles, and by foot. We asked ourselves which method of transportation was most common in our streets, and to find the answer, we went outside and counted cars, buses, bicycles, and pedestrians as they passed. (We saw a lot of people walking, but most of all we saw cars.)
We also studied structures and their shapes. We built our own structures using uncooked spaghetti and marshmallows. We were able to make two-dimensional shapes like squares and triangles, but we also discovered how to build cubes, pyramids, and other three-dimensional structures. We had a great time!
