Early in the school year the Aqua Elephants showed an interest in maps and this evolved into learning about paths. Teachers posted a few maps in the classroom and all enjoyed pointing out their houses. Soon thereafter, the students began making obstacle courses in the classroom and on the playground using the big blue blocks. Since their return from winter break, Aqua Elephants have been talking more and more about paths, obstacles, and maps. The class has taken a few walks around campus to explore different routes. Recently several large maps were donated by a parent and added to the classroom and this has sparked so much enthusiasm in the children. While they are in the beginning stages of this project, no telling where the path will lead!
