Place based preschool – parts of a tree.

Place Based Preschool:  Each session we have:  discovery and play stations, group circle, investigations, art, and closing circle.  We include songs and storytelling into the hour as well.

We made ourselves into trees with roots, leaves, trunk and branches.

Learned a new song…..

Parts of a tree son (  Tune of Wheels on the Bus)

The roots on the trees go

slurp, slurp, slurp

slurp, slurp, slurp

slurp, slurp, slurp.

The roots on the trees go

Slurp, slurp, slurp

All around the town.

Trunks……strong and straight

Bark….protect the tree

Branches….. reach for the sky

Leaves….. make food, food, food

Seeds…. go twirl and plunk

Wind blows the trees…. side to side

Investigate:  We observed and identified parts of a tree.

“This is bark from that papery tree.”  N.W.

“I remember these leaves with pointy parts.”  L.L.

Then, we used our observations to create a “Parts of a tree” collage.

“I want mine to look like a tree.”  C.P.
