Kindergarten Visits the California Academy of Sciences

On April 9, kindergarteners had the opportunity to explore the California Academy of Sciences. The “Flying Puppies” kindergarten class is focusing their emergent study on bones. Unlike the identity and family units, which are largely pre-planned, emergent units are selected based on student questions, observations, and curiosity. The Academy provided ample opportunities for acquiring knowledge related to bones.

Highlights included:

-Studying fossils

-Sketching bones

-Working on puzzles

-Assembling skeletons

-Watching puppet theater

-Studying the evolution of animals

-Studying animal skulls
