Today, the Brown Room children spent time in two groups. Each group got to tour the church kitchen and also take advantage of playing in the classroom with only a few other children. The exploration of the church kitchen was a rich experience! The children thought about that kitchen compared to their own kitchens, explored tools, learned new vocabulary, enjoyed munching on ice and much more!
Group 1: Maren, Ada, Palmer and Olivia
Group 2: Oliver, Ellie, Cannon and Wolf
Tools explored: spatula, whisk, can opener, ice cream scoop, stove, colander, oven, ice maker.
Concepts explored: temperature, colanders/draining water, size and quantity.
(The church has many large kitchen items for preparing large quantities of food.)
In the classroom...
There was some play in the kitchen:
And some painting:
