To go with our theme of My Family and Pets this week I set up a Animal Clinic in our Dramatic Play center.
On the left side of the dramatic play center, on the top shelf, we have a phone, a box for patient records, and a doctor's prescription pad. In addition, there are three different clipboards. One has a patient sign in sheet, another with patient information sheets, and a third with doctor's notes sheets. On the middle shelf we have containers for cotton swabs, cotton balls, tongue depressors, & medication (we used foam circles, I never want the kids to mistake real medicine for play). We also have leashes, collars, & toys. On the bottom shelf we have food dishes, doctor's tools, & dog treats.
On the right side of the center we have the different animals (fish, cats, dogs, snakes, and a frog). One of my students also decided we needed a microscope in this center and added it to this shelf. I thought this was awesome!
In the middle we have a waiting room. Next year I'll move the hooks for the doctor's and nurse's jackets and bags, but they were there from last week's Post Office Center and I decided not to waste the command strips to move them!
We also have a light table set up with "x-rays" on it for them to check out!

Filling out patient information sheet. This sweet guy asked, "Does your dog need a shot?" Haha!
Writing down doctor's notes!
I had so much fun making this dramatic play center! Here are some close ups!
