One of the strongest connections our children make to understanding their own world is when they involve themselves in creating a home for other living creatures. Every day, children visit the Habitat Centre. The sensory bins are filled with natural materials and representations of the creatures whose world we share.
This day, a spider habitat was created and documented by some of the children. So much concentration and planning was involved.
We heard rich discussion. We watched the children as they recorded their own learning!
As for the spiders... Home Sweet Home!
