Our long term investigation project this year is the human body. We started our investigation by having every child draw a self portraits of themselves.
How tall are we?
Each child was measured by another child to see how tall we are. We used different items found in the class to see how many blocks tall we were. Other items used was pegs and cubes,
Each child was measured using a string of yarn. The yarn was attached to their crafty self portrait along with the picture of their friend measuring them. At the end of the year we will measure them again with yarn to see how much they have grown.
