WE ARE GROWING AND CHANGING

In Science, we have been learning all about animals. We learnt about life cycles and how animals grow and change. We related this concept to our Social Studies class and found out how just like animals, we grow and change too.

We brought in different items from when we were infants and we had a chance to compare these from the things we use now. It was quite amazing to realize how most of the things we used when we were babies are not needed now that we’re 4-5 years old.

We tried on some of the things and most of the items were too small and looked funny on us.

We were also able to run through the timeline of how our faces and bodies change as we grow up. Our bones don’t only get bigger, but it gets stronger as well! Now that we’re four and five year olds we are now more able to do more things!

We also found out how the things we used when we were babies such as a pacifier, rattle, teething toys, had very important purposes in our growth and development. We wondered if we could still use these today but we found it very silly.

Our classmate also brought in a baby book. A baby book records our growth and development. It includes how much we’ve grown and weighed each month and as well as the medicines and vaccines we received. Our teacher told us that vaccines are important for babies since it protects us from the harmful things in the environment. We even had a chance to look at the vaccine marks on our arms!!!

We even had a better perspective of how our physical bodies change as we grow. Our friend brought in a photo album which showed how he looked like from birth till now. He was even able to keep his very first birthday invitation!

We also had fun learning how to take care of babies. Not all of us have younger brothers and sisters. Our teacher brought in her baby sister and we helped in taking care of her.

Taking care of babies is not easy! We couldn’t imagine how much of a handful we were when we were infants.

We had a lot of questions about babies, but what we wondered about the most was why babies cry! Our teacher’s sister named Summer cried a lot when she saw us. We found out that since babies are not able to talk, they cry to tell adults around them how they feel or what they need.

┬áBabies cry for many reasons! It’s either they’re hungry, thirsty, hot, scared, dizzy, ill, wet, pooped, etc. We couldn’t figure out at first why Summer was crying but eventually we realized that she was uncomfortable with her dress and that she was a little hungry. Phew! What a relief!

We realized that babies have a lot of needs and they can’t do things on their own yet like we do now.
