Dakota and Eleanor, our First Grade Leaders. We brought a shovel to clean off the benches.

Eleanor and Elijah were being scientists measuring the depth of the water. They used a stick and looked to see where it was wet, which showed them how deep the water was.

Turkey tracks and scat!

This log was a plane going to Hawaii, with the passengers escaping many repeated hurricanes.

Snow Ball #2! This one got rolled from the field, which we discovered is much easier than starting at the bottom of a ravine and rolling UP.

Snow Ball #1 made into a snowman. Can you see the face?

Ever the finders of tiny creatures, Hadlee and Grace managed to find roly-polies despite the snow and frozen ground. The roly-polies warmed up and moved around in their warm hands. Later, one seemed to stop moving, so we wondered if the warmth was too much all at once for it. Next time we’ll be more careful with little animals like these.

Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy your snow day! Make sure to get outside, despite the cold. Your kids will show you how. You could even come to the outdoor classroom with a friend or two!
