Preschoolers have spent the last several weeks studying buildings. They learned about what materials are used, what buildings are used for, who builds them, and what makes them strong.

One of the highlights of this study was when Scott Smiley, the Superintendent of the construction that is happening at Fall River, came to talk to us.

It has been all about recycling in Preschool! We learned what types of materials could and could not be recycled and where our trash and recycling goes after it leaves our school. We had great fun making magnificent things out of recycled materials. We experimented with trash and what happens when it ends up in the water. We now know what the recycling symbol looks like and what it means. We felt that we learned so much that we had to go and teach other classes how to recycle and take care of our Earth.
