March 11 - 15 M is for Minnesota Will we learn more about our home state this week? You betcha! We will be making our own Minnesota maps, playing in one of our 10,000 lakes in the water table, creating our own cherry and spoon sculptures, jumping through 10 hula hoops (10,000 lakes) and tasting our state muffin (blueberry) and state drink (milk). These fun and engaging activities help us to develop fine and large motor skill and make language, math and science connections. They also encourage creativity. Give me an M-I-N-N-E-S-O-T-A.
