Our youngest Patriots are embarking on a new adventure! For the past few weeks, the Toddler class has been exploring new intellectual science concepts as part of their "Exploring Things" unit. This week they were introduced to aerospace engineering.
Inquiry teacher Miss Jodi and Toddler teachers Miss Katie and Miss Stephanie worked together to create and simulate the basic concept of flight by using the Baby Loves Science board book series to host discussions with the children about living and non-living things, such as birds and airplanes, that fly, and how they accomplish the act. Each student then received the opportunity to test the theory and concept of flight when they put paper airplanes to the test on our very own playground! Our Toddler students did an excellent job of making connections to the actual airplanes flying overhead in the sky during their experiment period outside. Stay tuned to see which scientific concept they explore next!
Watch the toddlers taking flight!
