This week our theme for class is Despicable Me! The kids have been working on their banana splits and perfecting their cartwheels. We're also learning about the mineral, potassium.
This week for our nutrition lesson, the children are learning how the human brain has two sides. The left side of the brain controls the movements on our right side of our body, and vise versa. This is sometimes a difficult concept for the children to understand. One way we are breaking it down is by having each student raise their right arm then their left. We ask, “Which side of your brain controls the movements in this arm?” The younger children can point to either the left or right side of their head.
Learning to distinguish between the left and right side of our bodies is a great transition into cartwheels, because some students will find it easier to have their left foot kick up first, or their right. So cartwheels are a focus skill for us this week.
Other fun activities include crossing the low beam over the molten lava, doing a forward roll through the jungle vines, and racing to the dino nest to save a baby stegosaurus from the t-rex! If there is extra time at the end of class the children will get to fly like pterodactyls on the zip line!
