What's the best way to learn in Kindergarten? Observe and ask questions! We used a variety of different rock samples and some magnifying lenses to look closer. The classroom was buzzing with excitement as they looked closer at sedimentary rock, igneous rock, sandstone, and limestone. They were excited to find fossils in some of the rocks as they looked closer with their lenses!
|They were pros with the lenses!|
|Using a file on the sandstone to see just how soft they really are!|

We are also working hard to take care of our school garden. Today we took turns watering all of the plants. We have grown just about everything from seed. It has been a great experience to have this growing right outside our classroom door!
And as a reward we have been taking some extra recess too! It's been great to enjoy the wonderful weather and celebrate the last few days we have together as Kindergarteners!
|Taking a vote if we want to stay out and play longer. The answer was YES!|
