The Little Red Hen

After we had talked about how people get ready for winter, we decided to move on to animals getting ready for winter.  Now, The Little Red Hen, doesn’t exactly fit, but it did go along with our idea of harvesting.  My kids also wanted to know more about corn–they were wanting any information they could get about corn.  So we went in that direction for a few days.  I had some feed corn kernels soaking so we were able to split them open and look inside with our new class set of magnifying glasses!  I’m going to put this in a slide show because it will take forever to load individual pictures! 😉

  1. Did thecorn you planted get moldy? We planted lima beans with our pumpkin unit and they grew red and black mold before they sprouted! We realized they were “sick,” and tossed them in the trash after examining the root shoots. I want to know how to avoid this next year!


  2. Hello,
    I found these cute animals, with instructions, for toddlers.
    This are Lego Duplo constructions that help develop the motoric skills and are also fun to make.
    Have fun!
