Monthly Themes and Dates

September – Your Health Matters!
As we learn about the amazing things our bodies can do, we’ll also discover that our bodies, like all living things, need special care. Children will investigate how germs are spread and how things we cannot see can make us feel yucky. 

9/15 – Nutrition
9/22 – Exercise & Movement
9/29 – Germs

October – Science Skills
Science tools help us observe, describe, and quantify our world. Children will feel like a real scientist as they use a variety of equipment from magnifying glasses to microscopes. Get those lab skills ready early!

10/20 – Estimation
10/27 – Documentation

February – It Makes Sense to Me!

April – It’s Not Magic, It’s Science!
Is it magic or is it science? Your little Houdini will witness super science spells as we conjure with chemicals, fool the eye with illusions, and sneak in some slight-of-hand tricks. Be ready to be mesmerized by your mini-magician!
