Place Based Preschool Winter

Here are a few highlight pictures from our winter session. We met 5 times over the winter to think about the night and sky. We explored the reason for day and night, we had fun exploring aspects of each; stars, moon, constellations, shadows. We started our session by talking about the rotation of the earth.

“Does the earth make a shadow on the moon or just not shine on it? ”

This session, we were inspired by the stories around constellations. We made up some of our own constellations and stories to go with them. We loved the storytelling so much that we decided to do our own play with shadow puppets.
