Changes to the Environment
In the dramatic play area we will find a farm area with barns, animals, and machinery. For art play we will use farm animal stampers. For sensory play we will explore grain in the sensory table with scoopers, silos and animals. We will add farm animals to our block area for construction play. For small motor play we will categorize animals by types and by colors and for large motor play we’ll play a farm animal bean bag toss.
