The sights, sounds, and architecture of Europe were on the minds of our preschool kids this week as we began looking at all the different countries that make up this rich continent.
We explored all the different types of homes, buildings, and monuments found in Europe then worked in groups to replicate those structures using blocks, legos, and snap cubes. Also, we then used playdough to imitate some favorite European dishes, such as pizza, pretzels, and pastries.
As the week continued, we enjoyed the classic storybook Strega Nona and noticed how sentences always show a complete thought. We then tried writing a complete thought, beginning with a capital letter and ending with a period. We also created mini-murals showcasing a map of Italy, the Mona Lisa, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Our European Adventure has been a memorable one … I hope we get to visit there again soon!
