This month we will be studying different types of weather. We will become weather forecasters in our dramatic play area, with a US map and weather cards. We will discuss how the weather is different in other parts of the United States. Our dramatic play area will also include seasonal dress-up bins and a light table. We will also be experimenting with wind through wind exploration activities.
