Transportation Unit

We used the blocks to make bridges and roads for all types of vehicles.  

In the ABC center we used cars with Capitol letters and parked them on a mat to match their lower case partner.  We also made trucks by matching capital and lower case.

We used monster trucks in the sand to make tracks and we experimented with objects to see what sinks and what floats.  Then we added bears to boats to see how many it would hold before it sank.

Reading Center

    

Math Center- we counted wheels on trucks, used tens frames to count cars and shapes to make vehicles.

We used shapes again on the smart board to make vehicles and then used them to create our own vehicle!

 

The the engineering center we used different building material to create vehicles and we learned about gears and how they move!

Dramatic Play we took turns driving the car and later dressed up as different community helpers.
