    Changes to the environment

    The dramatic play area will be a bug lab. Our art area will have materials for making bugs (tissue paper, pipecleaners). Our sensory play will be dirt with bugs. We will sort colorful bugs for small motor play. Large and small motor play will be making anthills in sandbox.
