The four year old class has been learning about balls! We will do lots of experiments, such as which balls will sink and which balls will float? What do you think is inside a baseball? We will then unwrap a baseball and find out! We will discuss the many uses of balls, as well as their different sizes and shapes. Learning about balls will help the kids become familiar with different shapes and sizes, as well as the many different uses of balls. They will be exposed to a number of new vocabulary words such as gravity, velocity and ramp, just to name few! LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL!!

During discussions with the children, one child proudly said, “ A grape is a purple ball”. Looks like our project may be heading in another direction. That’s okay because the children drive a project in our class. Lillian Katz writes“The key feature of a project is that it is an investigation – a piece if research that involves children in seeking answers to questions they have formulated by themselves or in cooperation with their teacher.”
