Current Focus – Investigating Insects

C5 encourages the curiosity, wonder, and “What if?” moments that happen throughout the day.  We know that children are natural investigators, constant inquirers, and persistent discoverers of everything around them.  A student studies the anatomy of a beetle as intently as any scientist working in her lab.  Identifying different parts of the beetle, and researching their scientific names, help children to connect, compare, and contrast their body parts with insect body parts, thereby expanding their knowledge of living and non-living creatures.  Recognizing, researching, and evaluating insect anatomy often leads to writing activities, inventive clay re-construction, and creative fantasy role-play scenarios.  Learn more about our Pre-kindergarten Program.
