We Can Travel by Animal Power
Today we focused on how we can travel by animal power. I had arranged for a horse to visit us but cancelled yesterday knowing how cold it was going to be. By the time each child had a chance to pet and ride we would be frozen to the bone. Hopefully we can make this up in a later unit when it gets warmer. We did look at a picture of a horse and talk about how he is taken care of and what it is like to ride on one. Some of the children have ridden a horse before. We looked at a globe and talked about a few other countries and the animals they sometimes travel on.
In small groups we played a math game with tiny wheels.
Other things available today were a car color matching game
and a bunch of new cars and trucks
and a big shiny motorcycle !
We also made a horse paper sack puppet !
