Concluding our Clothing Study
March 10, 2021 | Felicity Greene
You may remember that as we transitioned into winter weather, the Sky Class began a study of clothes.
The children spent time noticing the clothes that they wore each day as well as discussing how the weather impacts clothing choices, the ways that people care for their clothes, and what happens to clothes when a person has outgrown them.
All of this discussion and observation about the clothing items worn by the children caused them to notice something else — the clothing on their bears had suffered some wear and tear of it’s own!
After many attempts to repair holes and tears in the bears’ clothing, the children decided that the bears deserved an upgrade. After all, the clothing worn in the late summer isn’t suitable for these cold winter days! So, after much work and attention to detail, the Sky Class children carefully crafted new clothes that fit the preferences and personalities of their individual bears.
And now without any further ado, please welcome back to the blog, the Sky Class bears!
