Kindergarten Jungle Cats: Adventures with Rocks, Hearts and Addition


Rock Discoveries

Kindergarten students have been learning about the different types of rocks. 

Ms. Sarah’s Jungle Cats joined with their middle school House to collect, investigate and record data on the rocks they chose. 

The kids have been learning about U.S. Presidents and Mount Rushmore. Ms. Sarah connected those lessons to the kids’ rock explorations. They used magnifying glasses and eye droppers as they went outside to explore the differences in rocks.

Addition with Heart Candies

The Jungle Cats celebrated Valentine’s Day with some lovely math!

The kindergarten kids worked on addition problems by using heart-shaped candies as manipulatives. Ms. Sarah says the kids are loving addition!
