We began by talking about what happens when we get sick and what makes us feel better.
Read A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip C. Stead.
I set up a veterinary office with a doctor imaginary play kit the library had from a previous event. I had emailed the parents the day before to ask that their child bring in a stuffed animal. (I had a few extra on hand in case anyone forgot.) We first had to fill out their patient card, using this animal record sheet from Mother Natured.
I created a shape recognition “surgical anatomy” coloring activity sheet. surgery-anatomy
After the doctor’s office, they took their pets “home” for some oatmeal and tea (apple juice) like Amos McGee had when he wasn’t feeling well.
