This project started in the Hummingbird Preschool as a survey of each child. Teachers asked the children if, and how, they decorated their homes for any winter holidays or celebrations.
In the days following this question, the children decided by consensus that they wanted to try out making and decorating a tree for the preschool.
Teachers asked questions throughout : “What can we use to make a tree?” “What does a tree look like?” Children contributed many ideas, including adding sticks from outside to create branches.
Learning along the way: Tree observations, hands-on construction and painting, cooperative communication, problem-solving
Happy holidays, everyone!
