• Clothes Study

    During the months of October and November, our class did a study on "Clothes". In this study, students learned about: different kinds of clothing, what clothing is used during which season, where we can get clothing, and how to make and take care of clothing, as well as, what equipment is used in making/caring for clothing. 

    Here are some of the Clothes study activities that we did in our centers:

    We made a washer and dryer for the Dramatic Play Area.

    Then we pretended to wash, dry, and fold clothing. We also dressed up in clothing.

    In the Dramatic Play Area, students role played as either a cashier, sales associate, or customer buying and selling clothes in our Cruz Clothing Store.

    At the Water Table, students hand washed and hung socks on a clothesline to dry.

    In the Discovery Center, students predicted and recorded during a clothing experiment: which clothing items absorb and repel water.

    In the Toys and Games area, students sorted buttons, played a clothes memory game, and hung up alphabet laundry.

    In the Library Area, we listened to and retold clothing stories such as: Mrs. McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash, Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons, There Was a Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything, and Ella Sarah Gets Dressed.

    In the Art Area, we created/placed clothing on a paper person.

    In the Block Center, students built various clothing stores.

    We celebrated the end of our Clothes Study with a Fashion Parade. We dressed in our favorite clothing and modeled our clothes in front of our neighboring classes.
