Desert Habitat Unit Workboxes for your Two Year Old

Desert Workboxes 2 year old

This year we are off to a hot start. Our study of habitats, from around the world, begins with the desert. Our preschooler loves animals so we are following along with his studies for Tot School. Lucky for me I have found some excellent printables that have pages appropriate for both age groups. I can’t wait to get started!

Desert Habitat Unit Workboxes for your Three Year Old

Desert Workbox 3 yr old

The world is kind of a funny place. An amazing place that I am blessed by everyday but its still kinda funny. Some places around the world are crazy hot, some freezing cold and other places bounce around in temperature.  In all of the various locations you will find different habitats and within those their own animals and separate ecosystems.

We love animals so while I was planning our home school preschool edition I thought it would be perfect to learn about different animals and their habitats. Every other month I have chosen a new habitat to learn about, starting with the desert.

I already know that Bee will love this unit.

Check out our bins for this week!

Week Review

Over the last few weeks we have taken learning at a nice slow and steady pace. We have spent a lot of time reading and exploring without a specific direction. I especially have enjoyed watching the kids discover some new things that peaked their interests. We changed our pace for a few reasons. 1 I am pregnant. I simply cannot do all that I wish I could do at this moment. Life is constantly changing and so we must follow suit and adapt. 2 I wanted to let my kids explore a bit more so that I could prepare some themes that actually target their interests. It worked and I have lots of new ideas to incorporate over the next few weeks.

Before I get too excited and share our future plans I better give you our review.

Here are our workboxes prior to starting this week:

Zoo, Zoo, Zoo! We Went to the Zoo!

Off to the Zoo We left for Calgary bright and early. Bee wasn’t ready to wake up but he was so cute. We rarely wake up the kids so he didn’t really understand what was going on.Zoo Lion

We loved wandering around and looking at all of the animals. Bee is only 18 Months so we mostly just talked about the names of the animals, sounds they make and what color they are.

Zoo Zebra

Zoo Riding Bear

Zoo Zebra Art

Zoo Penguin PlungeBee’s favorite was the penguin exhibit. He loved to watch them swim around and dive into the water. Zoo Coloring

On our way home we colored pictures of animals that we saw. Bee still doesn’t love coloring but we are working on it. I couldn’t let him have all the fun so I colored my own picture.
