Have you met our famed Science Teacher, Mr. Ted? He is our resident Science Guy who teaches the children everything about Science. This week the children are focusing on hermit crabs and their habitat. He also spoke to the children about what hermit crabs like to eat, what their shells mean to them, and each child was able to view them through the hermit crabs’ special cage.
Last month, the children learned about absorption with seeds. They planted seedlings and saw how the roots took hold and drank the water. Each child was able to create their own dirt pod. At the end of the month, the children were able to take home their very own Coleus plant. The Coleus plant has been a fixture in the center for a few years and has continued to produce offspring for the children to take home.
