We finished up our transportation unit learning about common modes of public transportation; train, bus, taxi, subway & ferry.
While the parents were away the kids got to play! We had a pizza and pajama party and made a cute little Santa Claus. We had lots of laughs and a great time. We ended the evening watching Frosty the Snowman!
This week we discussed ways to travel in the air (airplane, hot air balloon and helicopter). We talked about ways to travel on water (tugboat and canoe). We learned about common modes of land transportation car, truck, bike, foot & animal.
We've been moving right along with our transportation unit. We've learned how roads are built and why they have names, talked about common causes of traffic, road signs, basic function of a traffic light, different types of maps and what can be found on a map. We also built and learned about bridges; what vehicles that drive under, on or over bridges. They learned that gas makes the car go! Talked about when cars break down and have to go into the repair shop and they made their own tool kits for their car repairs.
