Body and Senses 9/25/2020

This week in the Toddler Room we talked about our bodies and senses. We continued talking about parts of our bodies including our ten basic body parts ( head, shoulders, knees, toes, etc.) The Toddlers also learned about some of their body organs like the heart; what it looks where it is ( what it sounds like) and that we need it to move the blood all through our body. We also talked about our stomach and intestines and what happens to food after we get all the vitamins that our body needs out of it. Lastly, the Toddlers learned about the brain- how we think and learn new things and also where their lungs are located. We also learned about senses. We introduced activities for each sense this week. Sound cylinders were introduced going from softest to loudest. For sight, we began looking for the change in fall colors. When we try a fruit that is new we smell first then taste. Touch from trying new fruit and picking up leaves and grass while we are discovering textures of fall.
