Theme of the week: animals

We made this animal poster already on Monday but we didn't have internet connection until last night so the posting comes a bit late. This week's theme is animals and we started by searching for different kinds of animals in old magazines (yes, again, I tend to keep everything just in case). The kids loved looking at mum's magazines and being allowed to cut them! They also love glue so this was a fun activity.

Before putting the poster together we spread out four A4 papers and classified the animals in three categories (land, sea and sky). That's probably not scientifically very accurate but the kids are quite small still so I thought that'd be an easy way to classify them. We did also talk about what mammal means and how some animals lay eggs instead but that's how far the biology lesson went this time.
