The Preschool Steam class learned about classification today.  Here is what we did:

-Examined real plants and animals in observation containers.

-Played a classification game which asked the students to find pictures, classify them as plants or animals, and glue them onto a poster.

-Studied seeds from different plant - harvested them, looked at them under a microscope, and made their own seed collection.

-Made a seed starter to take home and watch grow.

-Studied animals and classified them based on fur/no fur, big/little, fast/slow, etc.

-Participated in a Steam Challenge asking the students to build a tree with provided materials to hold several birds

A great time was had by all learning and practicing classification!
