Room 5 has been extremely interested in dramatic play since the beginning of the year. What are we playing in the house? Puppies, of course! We have been talking a lot about how dogs interact with humans. Some of the questions we ask during play time are: What do dogs need to be healthy? What do dogs eat? Where do dogs sleep? How big are dogs? Do dogs talk? What tricks do dogs do?

Over the course of the last three weeks Room 5 students have been exploring these answers. Here are some of the activities we did that involved dogs:

Looking at pictures of dogs at a shelter to use as inspiration for making dog houses.


Building dog houses with cardboard boxes.


Making treats for dogs. They eat Pizza and bones!
