PreK-1 Students Learn about Fire
Posted 10/24/2017 08:57AM

What gets bigger when it eats and gets smaller when it drinks?


We have started an investigation and exploration of fire and fire fighters.

This learning adventure started when the children were working on a fire engine puzzle. They started singing the fire truck song and began being interested in fire fighters. We, then, provoked their curiosity by showing real life videos of fire and how fire fighters extinguish them.

Learners began being curious about where the water is coming from when fire fighters extinguish fire, so we went on a mini-community field trip to look for fire hydrants.

Through the day, we have been working on artwork to set ablaze the learners passion for fire.

We also practiced counting to become familiar with numbers. We used our fire truck counting puzzle as one of our tools.

We even made a fire fighter helmet

And a fire engine.

We even have tactile explorations in the light table about fire.

As we continue to go through these exciting learning experiences, a lot of science concepts are tackled as well literacy and math learnings.

We sparked the path for exploration!
