The Preschool Steam Class studied vertebrates and invertebrates today.  Here is what we did:

  1. Built structures out of blocks.
  2. Examined the structure of a skeleton.
  3. Studied pictures of animals that when put in light revealed their skeletons.
  4. Learned that animals with skeletons are called vertebrates.
  5. Watched a video that identifies vertebrates, invertebrates and their differences.
  6. Did a Steam Challenge using play dough to build animals with and without a backbone to determine which would hold the most blocks.
  7. Played a relay game matching animals with their skeletons.

Who knew preschoolers could have so much fun learning about such a complicated topic!?!

Pictures are below.  Enjoy!
