The theme for IPS Summer Camp during the month of June is “Animal Planet.” The campers are learning about a variety of animals, from marine life to safari animals to woodland creatures! Through play-based learning, which is used to teach IPS students in both school and at summer camp, the children have played games, enjoyed theme days and events, created art projects, and more in order to fully immerse themselves in the study of animals. Here’s a look at what the campers have been doing during our “Animal Planet” theme!
Ms. Sarah, Green 2 teacher, collaborated with Ms. Christina on this week’s blog post about a wonderful mosaic art project she worked on with the children at 45th Street.
Art is an important part of the curriculum at The International Preschools. Children strengthen fine motor skills by participating in art activities such as cutting, drawing, tearing, taping, and drizzling. It is also a chance to let a child’s creative talents shine. Children are also encouraged to work collaboratively when creating classroom murals, collages, and paintings.
