At Monkey Puzzle Bexleyheath our Upper Pre School room have further developed their knowledge and interest in whales.
Megan gave them a fact sheet for the children to look at. The children were very intrigued to learn that a blue whales tongue weighs as much as an elephant!
The children went on to discuss if the whales would be friends with the animals in the pictures. How cute is that?
Megan further extended their learning by introducing Maths into the activity. She put several different sea animals in front of the children and asked them to pick which animal a whale eats? The children all picked a fish. They were then encouraged to find the numbers on each fish.
The children did amazing at recognising their numbers and were engaged and focused throughout the activity.
