Naturalist Visits TDLS

The highlight of the week was a visit with Ms. Bernadine, a naturalist from Mount Rainier Nature Center. She had crates full of interesting creatures. The children learned about insects by singing a song about all their body parts. Head, thorax, abdomen, eyes, mouth, antennae and 6 legs, all sung to the tune of Head Shoulders Knees and Toes. Madagascar, the hissing cockroaches, was a big hit with the children.  They also looked at an eastern hellbender salamander, an amphibian that started life in water, breathing like a fish, then morphed into a land animal that breathes air. Everyone had a chance to touch three reptiles, a leopard gecko, a python and a box turtle as well as a guinea pig named Chestnut. Please view photo gallery here.

What's a Bee Bot?

What is a Bee Bot? It is an exciting robot designed specifically for use by young children. This colorful, easy-to-operate, and friendly little robot is a perfect tool for teaching sequencing, estimation, problem-solving, and just having fun! Our young Explorers began using the Bee bot in Technology. They are retelling the story of "Green Eggs and Ham", as they programmed their Bee Bot to move around the mat.

Kindergartners have also interacted with "Bee Bot Fun". They built a Bee Bot City out of different blocks, then programmed the Bee Bots to move through the city. They also attached markers to the Bee Bots and programmed the robots to draw.
