Inside my classroom

An observation center filled with treasures

Inside my classroom - October 2017

Our observation center is filled with treasures from around the world. Many of the objects are from students' families, collected during their vacations in various countries. During work choice, kindergarten students observe the objects, examine an object's features using the magnifying glass and microscope, and discuss their findings with peers. Students are welcome to touch everything and are encouraged to bring new objects to share. Recent additions include Children's Day flags from Japan and subway maps from Paris and London.
